Fractions with Oreo Cookies
As I was eating Oreos a few days ago (my secret addiction), I was thinking how you could easily turn them into a hands-on, edible math activity. Thus, these fraction mats were born! They’re so easy to use, and are a great way to introduce or reinforce fractions. Who knew math and fractions could be so tasty?
After taking one of the cookies off of the Oreo, I was left with the frosting and one cookie. With a knife, I carefully cut the frosting into the desired fraction.
There’s a total of three mats, with seconds, thirds, and fourths. To use them with the mats, first, laminate the sheets. Then, copy the fraction picture on the mat with the Oreo frosting!
These fraction mats can be used for more than just Oreos. You can use them with Play Doh, cookies, colored goldfish, or even little objects like buttons or cereal. Your options are endless!
