With these task/scoot cards students can practice adding
and subtracting fractions with unlike denominators.
Simplifying is required in most problems.
7 word problem cards are included.
These task cards can be used in a number of ways. Your students can use these cards for a board game, as a math center, for early finishers, as task cards under a document camera or to play “Scoot”, which is described below.
Scoot is a fun review game in which students will “Scoot” from desk to desk answering problems! This game can be used an independent task, a review game or even a formative assessment.
How to Play Scoot:
Pass out the task cards in the order in which you want the students to rotate through the classroom, placing them face down. I suggest that before you actually play that you practice with your students the rotation they will be following.
Have each student push their chair in and stand at their desk with their “Adding & Subtracting Fractions” Answer Sheet and a pencil. When you say “Go” every student will flip over their task card and answer the question on their desk, making sure to put their answer in the correct space on their answer sheet.
(Allow students to use the back of the answer sheet or a piece of scratch paper to find the answer. When
all of the students (or the majority) have finished and flipped their card back over, say “Scoot”. They should immediately move to the next desk, flip their card and begin working the problem. Continue this pattern until
every student has worked out every problem!
