Fraction Word Problems

Five fraction word problems using addition are included in this worksheet. 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.

It is very easy to quickly search a topic and get ideas from some of the lesson plans. For my student teaching seminar, we were required to share a web site that we have found helpful with the class. My professors, new and veteran teachers alike were all amazed by the resources provided by Lesson Planet and the ease in which they were obtained.
