        Comparing Fractions: Bubble Gum Blowing Contest

        Determine which class wins the bubble gum blowing contest by comparing fractions based on how many students blew bubbles and the size of each class. This interactive exercise focuses on fractions with unlike denominators using number lines and takes math out of the classroom and into the real world.

        This asset is adapted from an activity from Annenberg Learner's Teaching Math Grades 3-5, a professional development course for teachers.
