Fractions can be difficult to teach and sometimes hard for your students to understand. I often see that students just need extra practice. In this post, I've included some fun activities that will keep your students engaged and better understand the skills.

With distance learning, students may not have manipulatives available that they may normally use in the classroom. 

Fraction activity ideas may include:
  • Cutting fruit, pizza, cake, etc. into equal parts
  • Counting the number of colors of objects
  • Counting candy, such as Skittles or M&M's
  • Rolling dice to create fractions
  • Working with recipes to double or triple the amounts
