Pizza Fractions PBL – 1st Grade Math Project Based Learning



Pizza Fractions Project Learning – 1st Grade

⭐ Pizza Fractions is a project based learning unit for 1st grade based all around preparing and serving pizzas based on appropriate situational fractions. This resource contains a standards-based unit in both printable PDF and Google Slides versions – so it’s the perfect activity to increase engagement and interest in the classroom or distance learning. Students follow instructions to identify equal pizza slices, partition pizzas into fractions, add toppings to pizzas to make fractions, and answer various story problems about fractions and their pizzas. Additional “challenge activities” engage students and develop further understanding of the concepts and skills.


⭐ This project-based learning task involves using the following CCSS Geometry math standards to solve problems related to pizza preparation.



Partition circles and rectangles into two and four equal shares, describe the shares using the words halves, fourths, and quarters and use the phrases half of, fourth of, and quarter of. Describe the whole as two of, or four of the shares. Understand for these examples that decomposing into more equal shares creates smaller shares.
