In this chocolately delicious lesson, your students will enjoy learning how to compare fractions and use that mathematical knowledge to create an inventory for a new local shoe store, Happy Feet Footwear. They will also write to express their opinions and provide reasons to justify their opinions.
This lesson suggests using "The Hershey's Milk Chocolate Fraction Book" to help students manipulate and compare fractions and have a great time doing so! What student wouldn't like to use chocolate to help him/her learn?
