This craftivity and centers game is a great way for students to practice matching fractions with their corresponding pictures. This activity goes along with Third Grade common core standard:
MACC.3.G.1.2: Partition shapes into parts with equal areas. Express the area of each part as a unit fraction of the whole.
Students choose a fractions card and color in each shape on their cube to match the correct fraction.
For example: A circle divided into four equal sections will be the fraction 1/4, 2/4ths, or 3/4ths on the fraction card. There is only one shape divided into fours on the cube and only one box on the fraction card with the denominator of 4. This allows students to think of the denominator as the "equal parts" of the shapes.
Once students finish coloring and assembling their cube with tape or glue, they can play the matching game with a partner using their card, fractions cube, and some counters. Students can switch cards to practice different fractions once they have used their own.
Each fractions card has a different set of fractions (some fractions had to be repeated) and I've included 10 fraction cards and 2 templates if you want students to choose their own fractions.
Cube templates can be printed on card stock for durability and fraction cards can be laminated for durability and reuse.
I've created a directions for creation and "how to play" instructions on one card if folded. You can laminate after folding for durability and future use.
