Adding Fractions with Pictures (and a Common Denominator)

This activity requires NO PREP, student and teacher documents included.

It is a riddle worksheet where students have an answer bank and they use that to solve a (slightly cheesy) joke. Kids like these activities because they make the math meaningful, and FUN, and teachers like them because the answer bank gives students a tool to self-assess.

Because of answer banks for students and answer sheets for adults, this activity is great for home, school and special education!

In this activity, students visualize adding fractions with no common denominator by matching a problem to a visual representation. This is a great introduction to the conceptual side of adding fractions.
