Fraction Math Lunch

The kids like when I make "surprise" lunch for them and during our first week back at school one of our lunches was a math lunch. I thought it was a good way to incorporate a lesson on fractions. I served one child in quarters, one in thirds and one in halves. We had quesadillas (very easy to cut in fractions), apples and juice served in a big glass measurement cup. I used measuring cups as drinking cups and Scrabble tiles for place names.

For dessert I filled glass measuring cups with milk to the fraction that coordinated with that child's lunch and served mini pies in the same way. It was a great lunch and the kids loved it!
