### Description

Adding and Subtracting Fractions Lapbook – Lapbooks are a fun and creative alternative to worksheets and are an excellent addition to any fraction unit.

********Can easily be used in Interactive Notebooks or Centers********

This pack includes student samples, answer keys, and graphic organizers with step-by-step directions, so that making this lapbook with your own students is easy and stress free.

There are a variety of foldables to choose from based on the standards and ability of your students.

Included in this interactive pack is
• Lapbook Cover
• +/- Fractions Flow Chart (two sizes)
• Steps to +/- Four Column Flipbook
• Comparing +/- with Common and Unlike Denominators Venn-Diagram Foldable
• +/- Using Visuals Envelope Pocket
• Adding Mixed Numbers with Common Denominators Square Foldable
• Subtracting Mixed Numbers with Common Denominators Wheel
• Steps to +/- with Unlike Denominators Hand Print
• Using Number Lines Stackable Book
• Adding Fractions with Unlike Denominators Swinging Ovals
• Subtracting Fractions with Unlike Denominators Mini-File Folders
• Subtracting Mixed Numbers with Unlike Denominators Match Books
• Adding Mixed Numbers with Unlike Denominators Pedal Foldable

Learners will love creating these hands-on and engaging foldables.

Standards:
4.NF.B.3 Understand a fraction a/b with a > 1 as a sum of fractions 1/b.

5.NF.A.1 Add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators (including mixed numbers) by replacing given fractions with equivalent fractions in such a way as to produce an equivalent sum or difference of fractions with like denominators. For example, 2/3 + 5/4 = 8/12 + 15/12 = 23/12 (In general, a/b + c/d = (ad + bc)/bd).

5.NF.B.2 Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions referring to the same whole, including cases of unlike denominators, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem. Use benchmark fractions and number sense of fractions to estimate mentally and assess the reasonableness of answers. For example, recognize an incorrect result 2/5 + 1/2 = 3/7, by observing that 3/7 < 1/2.

Understand a fraction 𝘢/𝘣 with 𝘢 > 1 as a sum of fractions 1/𝘣.
Add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators (including mixed numbers) by replacing given fractions with equivalent fractions in such a way as to produce an equivalent sum or difference of fractions with like denominators. For example, 2/3 + 5/4 = 8/12 + 15/12 = 23/12. (In general, 𝘢/𝘣 + 𝘤/𝘥 = (𝘢𝘥 + 𝘣𝘤)/𝘣𝘥.)
