Diving Question: How can we apply a hands-on approach to better understand fractions?
This 5th-grade project allowed students to experience and explore fractions through the manipulating of everyday items including M&Ms, Twizzlers, and making recipes of various food and non-food items (i.e., Slime). Through these hands-on experiences, students were able to better make sense of how fractions work and how fractions are part of their daily lives.
