 Let's Get Cooking  You are having a get together and are expecting 30 guests. You plan on serving Banana Bread, Chocolate Chip Cookies, and Sugar Cookies. Using three given recipes, students work with a group to create recipe cards to feed 30 people. Next, total up the ingredients needed. Then, check to see how much of each product needs to be purchased based on what is already on hand.

 Two Fractions from Michael Fenton  Stretch your students’ number sense skills with a fraction challenge. Use four different digits (from 29) and one operation (+, –, •, or ÷) to create two fractions in an expression with the greatest possible value. Also have students try to discover an expression with the least value or the expression closest to 0.
 First to 50 Fractions game  A game with 3 differentiated levels (level 1, level 2, and level 3) in which students use counters to collect fractions of groups and see who can be the first to collect 50 counters.This is a great idea and one that could be modified to include mixed numbers as well. The cards and counters really get at the concrete and pictorial representations of this outcome.
