The idea for this activity came to me right after Christmas, when I realized I had two of these in my cupboard:
My first thought was "how on earth will I keep from eating these!?!" My second thought was "fractions!" Our math coach is planning a math night in January and we had a conversation about using these for various math activities. In my mind I saw . . .
I then created recording pages for students to represent the fractions by coloring in the circles. We made a poster board size chart to glue the individual boxes to under the fraction labels (sorry, I should have taken a picture!). You can get a copy of my recording pages by clicking the picture below.
I'd love to hear how you adapt this for your class! Enjoy.
