Sweet Fraction Bars

This Sweet Fraction Bars lesson plan also includes:

Make sense of decomposing fractions by adding and subtracting parts of a whole. Fourth graders solve story problems by using ten-frames, number lines, or even candy bars that can be broken into pieces. Using each manipulative as a learning tool is a great way for pupils to visualize the decomposition of a fraction. The math activity can be extended by having students creatively design addition and subtraction word problems, and trading with a partner to solve.
