PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This product contains 38 fraction cards for students to sort into one of three categories: closer to 0, closer to 1/2, or closer to 1.

The game could be used over several rotations of centers: once with the aid of fraction bars, once requiring students to draw number lines, and a final time requiring students to think about how close each numerator is to half of the denominator.

Another alternative is to have students divide the numerator by the denominator and use 0.25 and 0.75 to help them solve the problems.

Sevenths and ninths, while not usually included as part of a fraction bar set, are included in this activity. You may choose to pull those cards or use them as a challenge.

A recording sheet & answer key are both included.

CCSS.Math.Content.4.NF.A.2 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.
