Students compare fractions with like and unlike denominators in this math pennant activity by first coloring portions of circles to show the two fractions in this activity that doubles as classroom decor. Students then add a <, >, or = sign between the two fractions to show which is larger. Half of the pennants have fractions with like denominators and half have fractions with unlike denominators. Once a pennant is complete, it can be hung along a string in your classroom to show the world that, "Hey, we know how to compare fractions!"
There are 2 pennants per page. All fraction circles are partitioned and have denominators of 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10 and 12.
Included are 30 pennants with fraction comparison problems (15 with like denominators and 15 with unlike denominators) and an answer key. Each group of students can be given a set of pennants, crayons, scissors and either glue, tape or a stapler. Students can be in charge of cutting out the pennants. Groups can compete to see which group can complete the most pennants or your entire class can add pennants to one string as they complete each one.
