Going to go great with a project I do!

This lesson is going to be great to initiate a lesson that I do with my students called Pizzeria Pink. I have the students design their own pizza's with various toppings for fractional parts.

Great lesson!

I love this lesson! I just taught this lesson to my students and this would have been a great resource to use. I love how it relates fractions to something the students can understand, like pizza. It provides the students with a real world application. Can’t wait to use this next year!

Extension Idea

I liked the pizza fractions, it provided the students an example they can understand. I would think a great follow up activity would be having the students share a cake between friends to insure all friends have an equal share, perhaps sharing the cake between 2,5, or 10 friends and having the cake be rectangular.
