Why Lesson Planet?
Five fraction word problems using addition are included in this learning exercise. Four of the problems revolve around food: pizza, cakes, bread, and pies! Tip: For extra fun, bring in a real loaf of bread, or other food item, to demonstrate one of the word problems. Be aware that the fractions are written with the letter s behind each, i.e. 1/5s and kilometer is spelled using British English. If these issues are undesirable for you, you could still use the problems as teaching examples.
