1. These additional Lesson Plans for Standards 4.NF.B.3.D and 5.NF.A.2 provide practice for students in comparing fractions to benchmark fractions.
2. Benchmark fractions can be easily compared to other fractions and include 1/10, 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, and 1/1. Knowledge of these fractions can be used to see if a solution to a fraction word problem makes sense.
3. Students will model the fractions using both pictures and number lines.
