Title – Fraction Pyramid

By – Cissy Condrey

Primary Subject – Math

Grade Level – Elementary

This lesson plan can be tied in with Social Studies and conduct (team work)!

Objective: As a result of this lesson, the student will be able to:

    Work cooperatively with others.

    Build a pyramid with manipulatives.

    Divide each layer into fractions.

Materials: Sugar cubes, frosting, baking pans (1 for each team), plastic knives (be careful ED classes), pencils

Procedures: Divide the students into teams. Instruct students to build a pyramid using the sugar cubes. Label each sugar cube on each layer (for example, if it takes 16 sugar cubes to build the bottom layer, label each sugar cube 1/16, pencil does well on the sugar cubes). Whoever labels their pyramid layers correctly and builds their pyramid the fastest is the winner!

Assessment: Teamwork, teacher observation, and final product
