This lesson will start with reviewing simplifying fractions and then ask students to represent real-world situations as fractions. Students can follow the PowerPoint with the structured notes provided. We will launch this lesson with a real-world example, comparing oat pieces to marshmallows in Lucky Charms. Once students have these skills reinforced, we will then ask them to write ratios in three ways and in simplest terms. Further, we will ask students to compare part to whole and then explain in everyday language what terms like 1 out of 5 mean. Aligned with Common Core Standard: 6.RP.1
