This zip file includes station activities focused on adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing fractions. They are designed to align with common core standards for fifth grade math. You save 15% when buying the bundle as compared to all the activities purchased individually. As I add more activities, I will increase the price accordingly, but you will still have access to the file for no additional cost!! I've also included 5 pages of organizational tips and best practices for station learning in the classroom.
I created these activities to use in station rotations in a fifth grade classroom. However, they can easily be used in a variety of ways. You will find activities within this file also suitable for math centers, game day, formative assessment, or summative assessment. These activities cover:
Unit 6: Adding and Subtracting Fractions
Unit 7: Multiplying Fractions
Unit 8: Dividing Fractions
As students rotate through stations, they are challenged in individual, partner, and group activities and games. I have included instructions for you as well as printable student directions for each activity. Whenever appropriate, answer keys are also attached. The following resources are included in this file:
1. Stations Organization and Tips (5 pages!)
2. Math Match – Add & Subtract Fractions (18 Cards!)
3. Poly-Problem-Solver – Add & Subtract Fractions (4 versions!)
4. I Have Who Has? – Add & Subtract Fractions
5. Roundabout – Multiplying Fractions (4 versions!)
6. Triangler – Multiplying Fractions (16 Cards!)
7. Article – Multiplying Fractions (With Graphic Organizer!)
8. Ordering and Operations – Fractions (3 Stations in 1!)
CCSS.5.NF.A.1, 5.NF.B.4, 5.NF.B.7
9. “GO FISH!” – Dividing Fractions (18 Cards!)
10. Roundabout – Dividing Fractions (4 versions!)
11. Article – Dividing Fractions (With Partner Activity!)
12. Problem-Solving – Dividing Fractions (Real-World)
When I decided to give stations a try in my classroom I was amazed at how EASY it was to differentiate instruction. This was something I always struggled with in the past. I was also amazed at how much actual problem solving practice my students were doing in class, without my directing their every move.
These activities are included the BEST BUNDLE for Fifth Grade Complete Year at 25% off!!!!

Common Core Standards in this resource file include:
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.)
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.
Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication to multiply a fraction or whole number by a fraction.
Interpret the product (a/b) × q as a parts of a partition of q into b equal parts; equivalently, as the result of a sequence of operations a × q ÷ b. For example, use a visual fraction model to show (2/3) × 4 = 8/3, and create a story context for this equation. Do the same with (2/3) × (4/5) = 8/15. (In general, (a/b) × (c/d) = (ac)/(bd).
Find the area of a rectangle with fractional side lengths by tiling it with unit squares of the appropriate unit fraction side lengths, and show that the area is the same as would be found by multiplying the side lengths. Multiply fractional side lengths to find areas of rectangles, and represent fraction products as rectangular areas.
Interpret multiplication as scaling (resizing), by:
Comparing the size of a product to the size of one factor on the basis of the size of the other factor, without performing the indicated multiplication.
Explaining why multiplying a given number by a fraction greater than 1 results in a product greater than the given number (recognizing multiplication by whole numbers greater than 1 as a familiar case); explaining why multiplying a given number by a fraction less than 1 results in a product smaller than the given number; and relating the principle of fraction equivalence a/b = (n × a)/(n × b) to the effect of multiplying a/b by 1.
Solve real world problems involving multiplication of fractions and mixed numbers, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem.
Apply and extend previous understandings of division to divide unit fractions by whole numbers and whole numbers by unit fractions.1
Interpret division of a unit fraction by a non-zero whole number, and compute such quotients. For example, create a story context for (1/3) ÷ 4, and use a visual fraction model to show the quotient. Use the relationship between multiplication and division to explain that (1/3) ÷ 4 = 1/12 because (1/12) × 4 = 1/3.
Interpret division of a whole number by a unit fraction, and compute such quotients. For example, create a story context for 4 ÷ (1/5), and use a visual fraction model to show the quotient. Use the relationship between multiplication and division to explain that 4 ÷ (1/5) = 20 because 20 × (1/5) = 4.
