Adding Fractions with no Common Denominator

This activity requires NO PREP. Student and teacher documents included. Check out the preview file.

It is a riddle worksheet in which students use an answer bank to solve a (slightly cheesy) joke. They like this activity because it makes the math meaningful and FUN. Teachers like it because the answer bank gives students a tool to self-assess.

Because of the answer bank for students and answer sheet for teachers, this activity is great for home, school and special education!

In this activity, students add fractions by finding a common denominator and simplify the result to answer the joke.
