These third grade comparing fractions activities are made specifically for small group instruction.

They are designed to be short & focused, standards aligned activities that help build conceptual understanding of fractions.

I broke down the standard 3.NF.3d into three major parts and created an activity for each learning goal. Each activity also includes a math warm up and test prep question along with an exit ticket.


Learning Goals

Activity 1: I can compare fractions with the same numerator or the same denominator by reasoning about their size.

▲▲ Activity 2: I can use benchmark numbers (0, 1/2, 1) to plot and compare fractions on a number line.

▲▲▲ Activity 3: I can compare fractions and use words, area models, or number line models to explain my thinking.

Compare two fractions with the same numerator or the same denominator by reasoning about their size. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with the symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
Explain equivalence of fractions in special cases, and compare fractions by reasoning about their size.
