What kid doesn’t love pizza? My kids would eat it every day if I would let them. It just so happens that pizza is great for learning about fractions! All the kids will love using these pizza fraction clip cards during math time. Though it might make them hungry…. maybe use them before lunch!
Materials needed for the Pizza Fraction Clip Cards:
I love using clip cards because they are so easy to prepare. From printer to ready in less than 5 minutes is always great for me.
Simply print the pizza fraction clip cards (found below), laminate, and cut apart the cards.
To use the clip cards, the kids place a clothespin on the correct fraction that represents the picture of the pizza.
These cards are especially useful for kids that are having difficulties remembering which is the numerator and which is the denominator, since some of the options are opposite of the correct answer. A card showing 2/3 of the pizza also gives 1/3 and 3/2 as options, to make sure that kids really understand their fractions.
The clip cards review fractions for halves, fourths, fifths and sixths, to give the kids lots of opportunities to demonstrate their understanding.
When we want to do an assessment of what the kids understand while we are using these clip cards, we pull out our math notebooks. The kids can draw a representation of the pizzas on the cards and write the fraction that they chose.
Another option is to take a picture of the finished activity with an iPad or tablet. Getting to use the tablet is always a great incentive to finish an activity!
