Mrs. Riordan's Fraction Monsters

Sixth Graders in Mrs Riordans math classes learned that fractions can be alot of fun.  The students used fraction manipulatives to create Math Monsters which they labled, colored and displayed.  Students also played fraction addition games in which they had to identify classmates monsters according to the sum total of parts used.
 
What a neat way to learn about and use fractions!!
