would be DELIGHTED to contract this fever! As elementary school
teacher, I have used Hershey Bars and their wrappers to teach
fractions for years. The kids LOVE it! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this
book to parents as a primary teaching tool or as an enrichment
resource. It not uses pictures of the Hershey Bar to show several
fractions in twelfths, but explains their relationship to the whole. For example, 3/12 + 9/12= 12/12=1. On one page it shows two ways to name a fraction-- as the fraction itself and in
simplest form (reduced to lowest terms), although it doesn't
say so in exactly those words. At the end, the author shows
13/12, and says that more than one whole candy bar would be used.
I like this book because it can be easily adapted for use with
older children by including mixed numbers, writing fractions in
simplest form, and even decimals/percentages. Also, I enjoyed the
inclusion of facts and questions about The Hershey Candy Company
and the ingredients used, as well as where cacao trees grow.
This book could also be used as part of a unit about chocolate!
Buy it and enjoy the fun as you eat your Hershey Bar!
