Investigating Fractions in Grade 1

In Grade 1, we like things to be hands-on and authentic.  The children were learning about fractions, wholes, halves, fourths and thirds using paper and folding.  To add some value to this, we brought in donuts and the children were challenged to figure out a way to cut the donuts in equal parts to share between, 2, 4 and then 3 people.  The person who cut never got to choose their piece first!  This was one of our tastiest investigations yet!
