Activity

We make smores to eat, but first make fraction parts with the chocolates and marshmallows...for equal fractions: If Katie handed out 6 marshmallows to Brad how many of them would she eat if she ate 1/3 of the marshmellows.

We make fraction story problems with the chocolates, marshmallows and graham crackers eating along the way until we made fraction parts: give half of the graham cracker to a friend: now who us 1/4 of the new graham cracker, etc..kids love this..you can also use mini marshmallows to make it cheaper and mini Hershey bars too!
