Pizza Fractions

As part of the Common Core Curriculium second grade students are responsible for dividing rectangles and circles into 2,3,or 4 equal parts. What better way to practice this than by cutting and eating our own pizzas?Students worked in cooperative groups to come up with a plan on how to cut their pizza so they would each have a fair share. The they cut and enjoyed. As a follow up activity, they created paper pizzas to show their understanding of halves, thirds, and fourths.
