My 2nd grader is obsessed with fractions. Totally. She actually asked me to print her some fraction activities for a real Christmas present. Obsessed. She is also obsessed with chocolate. *wink*Today, she got to combine her faves for some fun math! This free printable chocolate fractions pack is full of activities that will get any kid excited about fractions. They might not ask for school work for Christmas, but you never know…
Materials needed for the Chocolate Fractions Pack:
Paper (and scrapbook paper for the memory game)
2 Paper clips
Included in the Chocolate Fractions pack:
Spin & Cover (2 versions)
Print on card stock and/or laminate
You will also need one paper fastener and a paper clip plus whatever you would like to use to cover up the chocolate bars as you play.
To play independently, simply cover the earths as the fraction or equivalent fraction is spun.
To play as a game, using two kinds of ‘chips’ to cover the chocolates, take turns spinning the spinner, and whoever covers the most chocolates wins.
You can also lengthen the game by playing it as a Bump! game.
Super easy, but still lots of fun.
Fraction flip books (2 versions)
Two easy to assemble flip books to work on identifying fractions. Similar skill levels, but different fractions.
For a challenge staple the pieces on in a random order. Then, as your student reads the book they will need to match the picture to the actual fraction.
To prep: Print the chocolate fractions matching game on the white side of the scrapbook paper (or on card stock), laminate and cut apart the cards.
To play: In case you haven’t played Memory before, you turn over two cards at the same time. If they match, you get to keep them and turn over another set of fractions to try again.
If they don’t match you turn them back over and it becomes the next person’s turn. Play continues until the cards have all been matched.
