This Hershey Math Collection will help you engage your students during math class with learning that involves a student favorite, chocolate!
This is another free resource for teachers from The Curriculum Corner.
Our free Hershey math collection includes task cards focusing on Hershey history and on fraction activities involve Hershey bars.
Your students will love these engaging math activities!
Adding candy to teaching a skill can be a great way to peak interest in a subject and get students engaged.
Obviously this can’t be done everyday but it is a fun way to add a little something to a lesson during those endless winter months spent indoors.
Using these Hershey Math Resources
We have created a set of three math resources to accompany a study of chocolate in your classroom.
These activities all focus on Hershey Chocolate Bars but the actual candy bar is only required for one of the activities.
We think it could be a fun way to celebrate Valentine’s Day in classrooms during math!
The following activities are included in the download
Math Task Cards
This set contains a collection of 18 word problems that progress in difficulty.
Also included are two different recording pages.
You can differentiate this activity by choosing task cards that meet the needs of each student.
Hershey Bar Fractions
This includes three activity pages that are designed to be used with a full size Hershey bar.
Students will use the Hershey bar as they complete the tasks involving fractions.
When complete, they can eat their candy bar!
Adding Chocolate Pieces Center
This game includes fraction cards and a recording page with Hershey bar outlines.
Students choose two fractions, color the Hershey pieces and find the sum of the two fractions.
(NOTE: we have included fractions that are not reduced and fractions that will result in a sum greater than one whole. You may choose to remove these.)
We hope you enjoy these free and sweet resources!
