Product Description
Simplifying (Reducing) Fractions will be so much fun with this Math Mystery Activity 'Case of The Shogun's Sword.' Students will find themselves in Japan during the year 1850, helping the Shogun solve who switched his precious sword. It's a great way to get lots of practice in simplifying (reducing) fractions to the lowest terms.

There are FIVE clues to crack to solve who switched the Shogun's Sword:

Clue 1 - Simplifying/Reducing Fractions
Clue 2 - Simplifying/Reducing Fractions
Clue 3 - Simplifying/Reducing Fractions
Clue 4 - Simplifying/Reducing Fractions
Clue 5 - Simplifying/Reducing Fractions
PLEASE NOTE - In this 3rd grade version, the denominators of simplified answers are mainly 2, 3, 4, 5, and 10. A few fractions are given in the already reduced form to help give students the confidence and ability to look at a fraction and determine whether it already is in its simplest form (these fractions may have denominators of 7/9).
