We read a part of Fraction Fun and discussed using a pieces of pizza to identify what fraction of the pizza we were eating. The students made a paper pizza with paper plates, red paint and construction paper scraps. Then we cut real pizzas into 1/2, 1/4, and 1/8. We each got to eat 1/8 of the pizza.
Finally, the students drew lines to labeled their paper plate pizza's to show 1/2, 1/4 and 1/8.
