Use a simple model of an apple tree to play with fractions
Like all fractals, a tree grows by repeating a simple process. In this case, a tree trunk splits into two branches. Each branch splits into two branches again, making four branches. Each of these then split into two branches again, making eight. Apples on the tree are used to practice working with adding fractions and using common denominators.
