Are you searching for a step-by-step PowerPoint that can be used to introduce fraction concepts to your 4th grade students in a way that will grab their attention? You've come to the right place! This 52-slide PowerPoint will introduce your students to many of the fraction skills identified in the 4th Grade Common Core State Standards. It covers equivalent fractions, least common multiple and simplifying fractions, greatest common factor and comparing fractions, and benchmark fractions. Each section includes many practice problems. Plus, this resource comes with a bonus set of exit tickets!

PowerPoints filled with visuals are ideal for teaching new content to students because PowerPoints tend to be highly engaging and concepts can be easily broken down into understandable chunks of information. But let's face it... they are so time-consuming to create! Fortunately, now you have an option of using one that is already complete, kid-tested, and ready to go for you!

This PowerPoint is designed to be used over the course of 4 days. Each day, use this PowerPoint to introduce a different fraction concept. The PowerPoint begins with a brief review of the terms "numerator" and "denominator". After the introduction section, there are five main sections to the PowerPoint:

  1. Equivalent Fractions
  2. Simplifying Fractions (and Least Common Multiple)
  3. Comparing Fractions (and Greatest Common Factor)
  4. Benchmark Fractions

Each section contains MANY practice opportunities!

This PowerPoint contains TWO EXTRA BONUS FEATURES!!

  1. A PowerPoint companion handout is included in this file. As you advance through the PowerPoint, students can record their answers on the handout. The companion handout is available in both printable format or digital format. The digital version is compatible with Google Slides.
  2. After each section of the PowerPoint, hand out a half-sheet exit slip and have students complete it independently. When you correct the exit slips, you are presented with immediate feedback on which students might need additional small group or individual instruction. The exit tickets are available in both printable format or digital format, as well.


Here's what teachers like you have to say about this PowerPoint:

  • Kathy O. said, "Deb Hanson's PowerPoints and companion pages have become an integral part of my teaching. I use them as either a catalyst for a lesson or as a review. My students love them and actually cheer when they see it on the screen."

  • Fabulous in 4th Grade said, "This PowerPoint is a MUST HAVE! I love how engaging, visually appealing, and informative it is."

  • Caylin H. said, "This is one of my favorite math resources ever! The PowerPoint quality is awesome, the explanations are conceptual and build in complexity, and the notes are a perfect companion. I have VERY widely ranging skill levels in my 4th grade class and this creates the perfect mini-lesson that everyone can grasp, without my advanced kids getting bored."

  • Dominique C. said, "Very useful. I was teaching fourth grade for the first time and this was perfect for my needs."

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Explain why a fraction 𝘢/𝘣 is equivalent to a fraction (𝘯 × 𝘢)/(𝘯 × 𝘣) by using visual fraction models, with attention to how the number and size of the parts differ even though the two fractions themselves are the same size. Use this principle to recognize and generate equivalent fractions.
Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators, e.g., by creating common denominators or numerators, or by comparing to a benchmark fraction such as 1/2. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
