Do your students love Skittles? Yes, it's rhetorical. Why not take advantage of their love of Skittles while working with fractions? Fractions never tasted so good. This lesson adds a bit of mystery, because students learn about their roles by finding an envelope under their chairs/desks. Before downloading this resource file, download my lesson plan file so you know what you're getting. This file contains the individual lab sheet, a lab sheet for each role, and a teacher resource to help you succeed.
I hope you enjoy my lesson. There are many more to come as I write them.
Thanks for your interest!
