In this week’s Afterschool Adventure, Appetite for Fractions, children will explore fractions as they help create, divvy up, and serve a variety of real and virtual snacks. First, children will practice using fractions as a way to represent equal shares of whole items like pizza and cake. Then they will use fractions to represent and divide up multiple items, like apple slices, sandwiches, and chocolates in a box. At the end of the unit, children will have the chance to work with fractional measurements like 1/4 of a tank of fuel and 1/2 cup of water. The unit culminates with children using fractions to create a bird feeder to feed local birds.
