1) Look at this recipe to make homemade playdough. Recipe: 1 cup of flour 1/4 cup of salt 3/4 cup of warm water 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil Food coloring - optional Step 1 - Measure the flour and salt and mix together in a bowl Step 2 - Add the warm water and a few drops of food coloring (optional) Step 3 - Mix the ingredients together and add the vegetable oil Step 4 - Store in a container or plastic baggie when not using 2) If you were doubling the recipe for two people, what would the new measurements be? What would the measurements be if 5 people were making it? Share them in your response. 3) Make the homemade playdough with your family. Take pictures of the process and post them too! (for fun) 4) Then use your new playdough to show equivalent fractions of fifths (like we did with our food). Post those pictures in the response too. In the pictures add the multiplication sentences for each equivalent fraction. 5) Keep your playdough...we'll use it again tomorrow.
