## Description

This **5-day** project-based math resource applies math concepts in a real-world scenario to teach students about **comparing fractions and explaining equivalent fractions.** In this** 5-day unit**, students will use their knowledge of fractions to open a plan a pizza party. This math project is engaging and authentic. Plus, it’s available as both a digital and print resource.

This project-based math resource is **aligned with the following 3rd Grade Math Common Core State Standards:**

- CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.3.NF.A.3

Explain equivalence of fractions in special cases, and compare fractions by reasoning about their size. - CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.3.NF.A.3a

Understand two fractions as equivalent if they have the same relative size compared to 1 whole. - CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.3.NF.A.3b

Recognize and generate simple equivalent fractions. Explain why the fractions are equivalent. - CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.3.NF.A.3d

Compare two fractions with the same numerator or the same denominator by reasoning about their size. Understand that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record results of comparisons with the symbols >, =, or <, and justify conclusions.

**This resource is available in both Printable & Digital Google Slides versions.**

**What’s included in this resource:**

**Background Knowledge:**Using a circle map, students will build background knowledge around planning a pizza party.**Fraction Review:**Students will review how to draw visual models of fractions and label fractions on a number line.**Comparing Fractions:**Students will learn how to compare fractions using visual models and number lines**Planning Pizzas:**Using the learned concepts, students will create four different pizzas and label the fractional parts of each pizza.**Comparing Pizzas:**Students will compare fractional parts of the four pizzas, and explain the different fractional parts of each pizza.**Wrap Up:**Students will write up a review of key terms related to comparing fractions.
