Food, Fractions, Freebie

We are wrapping up our primary focus on fractions next week, well until it's time to start reviewing for our state tests anyway.  That being said, I thought it would be fun to bring some more of what I loved in the lower grades to 5th grade.  Hence the creation of Food Fractions!  Late next week we are going to make Rice Krispy treats as a class.  The children are so pumped to "cook" at school during math time.  I created a fraction recording sheet  (click the name of the doc to get your "freebie") with the original recipe from Kellogs.  Basically, the children will have to work independently to figure out they need to double the recipe for everyone in the class to have a piece of the action.  Once they figure it out, they will work with a partner to double the fractions.  After all children have completed the task we will make the treats.  Should be a fantastic time had by all.  What do you do to complete a unit on fractions?
