Fraction Fun with Paper Plates
Introduce or review fractions with this fun activity.
- At least 3 white paper plates
- Crayons and/or markers
- An assortment of “friends,” such as stuffed animals, dolls, action figures, and so forth
Using the crayons and markers, let your child decorate the paper plates as pizzas or cookies. Then, cut one plate in half, one in thirds, one in fourths, etc. Have your child decide which pizza/cookie is appropriate for the number of toy guests. Make up a story for the guests to decrease or increase in number in order to increase interest.
