This product is a hands-on activity that allows students to use concrete materials to generate fractions. Students are asked to determine fractions based on the colors they find in their pack of Smarties. Students are also asked to assess whether the fractions they generated are in simplest form. If not, they are asked to write an equivalent fraction in simplest form. The activity concludes with a higher-order thinking question. This product includes a rubric checklist as well as a modified version of the worksheet with an alternate higher-order thinking question.
