Double or Triple a Recipe

The next time you need to double or triple a recipe, ask your child to help. Show him the recipe and explain how many servings it makes, along with how many servings you need. Help him go through the list of ingredients and systematically double (or triple) each item as needed. This real-life activity provides an excellent review of adding fractions.
