Brownie Sharing - A Mixed Fraction Lesson

Mixed Fractions can be intimidating to students. Once students understand the concept of fractions they will be able to solve more complex problems like mixed fractions. I have a great lesson and resource for you using mixed fractions. This Free resource has a fun little lesson to do with students about fractions and mixed numbers. Students use pretend brownies to cut up and share so that each person has an equal amount of brownies. To spice the lesson up, use real brownies for one of the activities.

Not only do you get a little lesson, but you get 6 task cards, worksheets, a recording sheet, and a lesson on how to share brownies with friends. After the lesson, students to continue practicing the skill or later at a math center. Either way, your students will have a fun activity to practice a real life skill, sharing equally!

  1. That's a pretty good way of teaching mixed fractions, and I'll definitely give it a try when I'll help my son with that. I can tell you that not so long ago, I decided to finally get new White Kitchen Cabinets Philadelphia, so we'll definitely cook some brownies and use them for a more effective lesson.
