Fraction Detective Task Cards
If you have some technology in your classroom, this is a must have activity. These are interactive task cards for iPad or Android devices. Students scan them using a QR Reader and they complete a short activity. My task cards are not like others you've seen that only give students an image. Each scan connects the student to an html5 interaction that they can manipulate.

Connecting to internet sites is always a concern for teachers. These urls are free of ads and outside links. So if students are using a QR Reader that doesn't allow them enter a new web address, they will not stray to other sites.
These task cards offer easy differentiation. There are four types of cards in the set:
:Review cards, contain a video review and extra practice
Blue Cards: Practice cards, contain practice problems
Green Cards: Advanced cards, for early finishers and above level students
Purple Cards: Flexible Game cards, For classroom games
6 Red Review Cards that include Video
30 Blue Practice Cards
12 Green Advanced Cards
12 Purple Game/Blank cards to create classroom games

Hiding within the interactions are mischevious creatures called Nittles. Motivate your students by holding a Nittle catching contest or give rewards for catching them.
