Pizza Fractions

I printed off these sheets from the Family Fun website.  They look so realistic!  We didn't play with them according to the game instructions on the website - but we plan too!  I just cut the slices out and started talking to the kids about fractions.

I thought this would be more appropriate for Sarah, but Jillian and Matthew ended up being more interested.

Jillian decided to set up a pizza store.  I would ask for 1/2 a pepperoni pizza, or 1/4 or a cheese pizza and then pay her in pennies for the pizza.

She even discovered that a 1/2, a 1/4 and 3/12 will make one whole pizza and that 3/12 is the same as 1/4.  This was a great way to have fun with fractions!
