Food Fractions

We shared sandwiches into halves (2 fair shares) and quarters (4 fair shares).
We cut paper squares into halves and quarters.

We looked at chocolate chip cookies. We used paper circles to show how we would share a cookie fairly between 2 people (1/2).
We worked out how we would share the cookie between 4 people (1/4).
We even looked at how we would make 8 fair shares (1/8) and 16 fair shares (1/16).
We all thought we wouldn't get very much cookie!

Finally we got to EAT a whole cookie each!


  1. yum! They were yummy.

    That is a great question to talk about with your family. I wonder what made you think of it?
