Product Description
This article is written for middle school students to learn about multiplying fractions. It is brief (one page), but will give your students an understanding of multiplication as scaling by a factor larger or smaller than one. This can be used in station rotations or with a whole class. I have included directions and activity sheets for a partner reading activity and small group summarizing.

This article was written by Kimberly Wasylyk, a math teacher with over 10 years of experience.

Look out for this activity and many others in my fifth grade bundles at a deep discount!!! Coming Soon!
