EXPLORENow that you know about Equivalent Fractions, you will design your own trade book like the one we read in our Lab called, The Hersheys Milk Chocolate Fractions Book by Jerry Pallotta. You will be required to use an object that can be divided into equal parts to introduce Fractions and provide examples of Equivalent Fractions.
Equivalent FractionsTEACHERS PAGERecommendations for implementation: This field trip is recommended for whole class, small group, and individual implementation.Introduction Activity: Introduce this virtual field trip by reading The Hersheys Milk Chocolate Fractions Book by Jerry Pallotta. Give each student a Hershey bar and have them follow along in the book while using the candy bars as a representation. They will also be responsible for keeping track of the fractions they create on their own papers. After reading through the book, ask students to demonstrate equivalent fractions with their candy bars. When they are done with the lab, they are allowed to eat their candy bars. Introduce the Virtual Field trip at the end of this activity, by asking students if they had fun and telling them that they are going to go on a virtual field trip to learn more about fractions.
