The True Story of the Big Cookie — Fraction Action!
Understanding the practical application of fractions in everyday life.
“Today I was very bored, so I decided to bake a cookie. Not just any cookie…” (a humous original CWB story)
Follow the story and problem solve the fractions along the way. The cookie pieces are already divided into fractions (thirds, sixths, fourths, and eighths) and they find the cookie pieces to equal the correct fraction in the story line. Lots of fun with sweet stuff and at the same time, learn a bunch about fractions!
NOTE: Hands-on activities like this one help young children develop an understanding of how fractions work, and give them opportunity to hone their skills.
