Sausage Fractions – Real Life Example

I have 3 kids and was cooking sausage for them.

There were 5 sausage links available (below). How do I give each the same amount? Fractions!

Each child gets a full sausage link.

I then cut  the remaining 2 sausage links into 3 parts, 1 for each child. 1/3 of a link.

Each child gets 1/3 and another 1/3 or 2/3. So they get 1 full link and 2/3 of a link or 1 2/3. This is an entry point into mixed numbers (whole number and a fraction).
