Integrate Social Studies/Geography with this fun practice involving equation writing and adding, subtracting and simplifying fractions using the U.S. map!
Students will use the map to answer a variety of questions requiring them to identify states that fit the description, then represent their answer as a fraction. Students will add, subtract and simplify fractions with common denominators as they complete the assignment.
*This does not involve mixed numbers!*
*50 is the only denominator used, but students are asked to simplify*
Once you download this item, you will need to provide the kids with a map of the U.S. showing the states that border Canada and Mexico. In addition, you will need to add a picture of a map showing these 5 U.S. regions: Northwest, Southwest, Northcentral, Southeast and Northeast.
