Math Bulletin Board FREEBIE - Pizzas at a FRACTION of the cost! :)

We are less than a month away from our annual state testing and Room 5 has just concluded learning about fractional parts of objects. As a tie-in to our math curriculum, we designed a math bulletin board as a class. One of my extremely bright and creative students came up with our BB slogan.

Students chose pizza toppings and were given the amount of slices that their pie would include. They designed their pizza and came up with the fractional parts for each topping. I had them color the edge of a standard paper plate brown, gave them a traced circle to cut out on paper, a ruler to "cut" their pizza in the right amount of slices, and paper/tracers for the toppings that they chose. This whole project took approximately 30 minutes from start to finish.
