PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

***This activity requires fractions strips******

Introduce your students to Adding fractions with unlike denominators the fun, hands on way! Finding a common denominator can be tricky for students, especially if you do not teach them the concrete concepts first. This activity includes a power point and 12 task cards to get your students adding fractions with unlike denominators using fraction strips.

The power point presentation requires the students to have fractions strips. There are places throughout the presentation labeled as "student tasks." This is a time for the teacher to stop talking and allow the students to discover. Let the students manipulate the fraction pieces and try and solve the task themselves. The solutions will be provided on the next slides.

After the students have practiced with the teacher, they will be given 12 task cards to practice the new skill. I only chose 12 task cards so that the students do not feel overwhelmed. You may choose to use these task cards however you wish. I usually make about 4 or 5 sets and give a set to each group to solve together.

Thank you for viewing my hands on activity.
