Adding candy to any lesson will always engage students, but why not get some math out of it in the process?
Candy can be used for addition, subtraction, multiplication or division. It’s fun to use candy once and a while as manipulatives, but the trick is to use it sparingly. We designed this quick activity to get students reviewing what they have been learning about fractions and decimals. We added the candy just for fun.
You don’t have to use candy hearts, but any candy or any type of counters will do. It does refer to candy hearts on the page.
You can download a free copy of the activity from our store.
