# Equivalent Fractions Math Project

Category

\$3.79

## Description

Get ready to make equivalent fractions EXTREMELY ENGAGING with this real-world math activity: A Recipe for Disaster!  In this high-interest project, students will dive into 5 REAL recipes with a twist… they must use equivalent fractions to fix the recipes and decipher the instructions.

I created this activity because my students needed authentic practice with equivalent fractions that encouraged them to think critically about the tasks. The task is seemingly simple: rewrite recipes with irregular measures using only a few key measuring cups. My students ADORED this activity, and I hope yours do, too!

This math project explores fractions equivalent to ¼, ⅓, ½ and 1 whole. Students will need to use division to find equivalent fractions.

Easy Prep & Set Up Instructions:

Step 1: Print a set of student pages (5) for each student.

Step 2: Print a set of recipe cards for each center. Optional: Glue envelope covers on an envelope and place the recipe cards inside.

Step 3: Use Fresh Fruit Salad as a teaching page. I brought in real measuring cups, and we had an amazing discussion about equivalent fractions. I made sure they understood the concept of converting the measurements using only the given measures.

Step 4: Students get busy fixing the recipes!

What’s included in this math project:

• 5 printable pages of engaging equivalent fractions practice
• 5 real recipes  (Try making them in class!)
• Full-page labels to set up recipe stations/envelopes
• A DIGITAL version in Google Slides
• Extension Ideas

Try using this project in a mini room transformation… the recipes are real so you can create them with your class!
