Center Focus

M&M Fractions

  1. Provide individual M&M bags at this center, enough for each student.
  2. Ask your students to find what fraction of the M&Ms are each color.
  3. After they get their answers have them represent them in a color-coded pie chart.
  4. You will need to provide directions and a sample for students to follow.
