They will also be responsible for keeping track of the fractions they create on their own papers. After reading through the book, ask students to demonstrate equivalent fractions with their candy bars. When they are done with the lab, they are allowed to eat their candy bars. Introduce the Virtual Field trip at the end of this activity, by asking students if they had fun and telling them that they are going to go on a virtual field trip to learn more about fractions.
