Students compare fractions with like and unlike denominators in this math pennant activity that doubles as colorful classroom décor. First, students color portions of circles to represent the two given fractions. They 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.

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Explain equivalence of fractions in special cases, and compare fractions by reasoning about their size.
Explain why a fraction 𝘢/𝘣 is equivalent to a fraction (𝘯 × 𝘢)/(𝘯 × 𝘣) by using visual fraction models, with attention to how the number and size of the parts differ even though the two fractions themselves are the same size. Use this principle to recognize and generate equivalent fractions.
Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators, e.g., by creating common denominators or numerators, or by comparing to a benchmark fraction such as 1/2. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
