Do you need a fun activity to celebrate Valentine's Day? Or, are you looking to review fraction number sense in a fun and engaging way? This product can help! This digital escape room is completely paperless with no prep! Just share the link with students and let them do their thing.

I wanted my students to stay focused on a day usually filled with lots of sugary treats. I also wanted them to have exposure to the multiple ways of looking at fractions (numerator/denominator. word form, shaded sets) I created this rigorous activity to give the students what they want and also ensuring they were practicing material they need to know.

The Story: Help Cupid Find His Bow

"Hello! I am hoping you can help me. I am trying to find my bow. My friends call me 'Stupid Cupid' because I am always losing my belongings. This time, I may be in real trouble. How can I help spread love on Valentine's Day without my bow? Please, say you'll help me? You will? Awesome, let's start by asking Honey if she has seen it."

The Puzzles:

Jigsaw Puzzle

Find the hidden homework (what's behind door number...?)

Decode Secret Message

Reveal Pixel Mystery Art

Unscramble Valentine's Day words to reveal a hidden message

Answer Fraction questions and spell a Valentine's Day word with the answers

The Skills students will practice:

Comparing word form fractions (example one fifth is less than one tenth)

Comparing two fractions with unlike denominators

Order four fractions with unlike denominators from greatest to least

Find equivalent fractions from shaded sets

Fractions on a number line and then reduce or simplify fraction

Before purchasing: Students must have access to google sites,google sheets and jigsawplanet.com. Some districts block these sites when created outside of the district. Please check before purchase. I am not responsible for blocked sites.

4.2 The student will

a) compare and order fractions with and without models;

b) represent equivalent fractions

Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators, e.g., by creating common denominators or numerators, or by comparing to a benchmark fraction such as 1/2. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
Explain why a fraction π’/π£ is equivalent to a fraction (π― Γ π’)/(π― Γ π£) by using visual fraction models, with attention to how the number and size of the parts differ even though the two fractions themselves are the same size. Use this principle to recognize and generate equivalent fractions.
Recognize and generate simple equivalent fractions, (e.g., 1/2 = 2/4, 4/6 = 2/3). Explain why the fractions are equivalent, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
Understand two fractions as equivalent (equal) if they are the same size, or the same point on a number line.
Explain equivalence of fractions in special cases, and compare fractions by reasoning about their size.
