Do you want your students to have a stronger fraction sense? Slides and Ladders Benchmark Fractions will get your students talking, thinking and reasoning together about fractions. During this activity, students will estimate if the sum or difference of two fractions is closest to 0, 1/2 or 1. In order to move on in the game, students will need to convince their fellow players that they are correct. This is an opportunity for such rich discussion! Students often draw diagrams on white boards or scrap paper or use manipulative to explain their thinking to each other. One of the most valuable parts of this experience tends to be the shared experiences created. Each time students play, they gain a whole new set of “just like that problem…” or “remember when Jack said it was like 1/2 because” experiences that they will refer to all year long as their work with fractions deepens.
