Fraction Scavenger Hunt

Due January 8

Objective: To better understand fraction concepts by experiencing real life
examples.

You are going on a fraction scavenger hunt. Your finished product will be a Fraction
Scavenger Hunt Scrapbook.

Option 1: You will be searching through newspapers, magazines, catalogs, books and store ads to find graphics that illustrate often used fractions such as 1/2, 1/3, ¼, 1/6, 2/3, ¾, and 5/6.You can also illustrate any other fraction that you like, these are just the more commonly used ones. When you find a graphic of one of these fractions, cut it out and place it on a page with that fraction listed at the top. You may end up with several graphics on each fraction page. When you have completed ten pages in your fraction scrapbook, bind it together and make a cover for it.

Option 2: You will use www.scrapblog.com to create a scrapblog instead of scrapbook. You can use digital photographs or find pictures online that illustrate often used fractions such as 1/2, 1/3, ¼, 1/6, 2/3, ¾, and 5/6. You can also illustrate any other fraction that you like, these are just the more commonly used ones. You will need to use cool fonts or “stickers” to illustrate the fraction on the page. You may end up with several graphics on each fraction page. When you have completed ten pages in your fraction scrapblog, you will need to publish it and email me the link. I will show you how to use scrapblog in class. You will need to have an email address to do this project. Also, if you choose to make it private, make sure I am able to see it. I will put some of these on my website, if you do not want your online, please let me know. Be sure to read the copyright laws and please, do not violate.

Options 1 and 2 are both worth 150 points so either one can be used. If turned in after Jan 8, you can only get 75 out of 150 points. TURN IT IN ON TIME!!!

Example: a family picture on the page with ¾. The caption reads: three out of four of my family members are girls. A magazine ad: three out of four dentists prefer Crest toothpaste on the page with the fraction ¾. Just keep it in a safe place over the Christmas holidays and keep your eyes open for fractional representations. When you see one, cut it out, put it in the scrapbook and then bring your scrapbook into school on January 8. Have fun doing this!!!
