Practice learning about fractions with Starburst jellybeans! In this activity students get 1 WHOLE cup of 48 jellybeans. Students will sort the jellybeans into parts based on the jellybean color/flavor and practice writing the fraction of jellybeans on their worksheet and color the jar of jellybeans reflecting their cup of jellybeans. In addition, students may practice adding the fraction of jellybeans and graph their data. As a culminating activity, a writing worksheet is provided so that students may write about their activity.
You may also extend their learning to perimeter, area, and arrays using the jellybeans.
