Benchmark fractions can be difficult for students to master, but with this set of task cards, they can be easy and fun to review! You'll love the variety of questions included on the 16 task cards as students practice using the benchmarks of 0, 1/2, and 1 to compare fractions.
Students can use this set independently, with a partner, or in a small group. They will record their answers on an answer sheet and check their work using an answer key (both are provided). This is a great activity for math centers, early finishers, review, and morning work.
Cards 1-8: identify the benchmark that a fraction is closest to
Cards 9-12: use a benchmark to compare fractions
Cards 13-16: use a benchmark to compare and order fractions
I recommend printing the task cards and answer key on card stock and laminating them for durability so you can use this activity over and over again! Directions for preparation and use are included.
This set pairs nicely with my Benchmark Fractions Sorting Cards!
Aligned with Virginia SOL 4.2a.
