These PBL Valentines Day Activities will engage your 2nd, 3rd, or 4th grade students as they practice their math and writing skills in a fun and creative way.

Please see all that is included by looking at the preview.

The students take on the role of bakery owners selling Valentine's Day Cookies. Throughout the project they will:

• double, triple and halve recipes (working with fractions)
• get their groceries (working with money)
• create a schedule for baking the cookies (telling time and elapsed time)
• multiply to fill orders
• work with arrays to put cookies on the baking sheets
• compose process writing explaining how to decorate cookies
• write descriptive paragraphs
• create a bar graph and analyze data

This makes a great ongoing project or you can pick and choose a few of the activities to do.

Several of the pages also include a blank version that you can write on to create differentiated versions to modify for your students' individual needs.

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.
Represent a fraction 1/π£ on a number line diagram by defining the interval from 0 to 1 as the whole and partitioning it into π£ equal parts. Recognize that each part has size 1/π£ and that the endpoint of the part based at 0 locates the number 1/π£ on the number line.
