This product has six different comparing fraction activities...
1. 24 clip cards
These 24 clip cards have students comparing fractions with common denominators, common numerators, and fractions with different numerators and denominators. There is a record sheet to hold children accountable and allow you to see the work they did.
2. 4 Written Responses
The Written responses show a problem and then give a wrong answer. The children must analyze the wrong answer, describe the misunderstanding, and explain how to complete the problem correctly.
3. 4 Do-A-Dot Pages
These pages allow children to use Do-A Dot markers to mark fractions that are greater than or less than the given fraction. There is a page for common denominators, common numerators, and two pages for fractions with different numerators and denominators.
4. Timeline to use with Clips
Using the fractions from the direction page, write fractions on clothes pins. The students will draw two fractions, place them on the number line, and then create an equation of the recording sheet.
Children draw a card and then find the answer on the game board. The cards ask children to find a fraction less than 1/2, greater than 3/4, or equal to 2/3.
6. Task Cards
These task cards encourage children to draw models and number lines to determine if a fraction is greater than, less than, or equal to another fraction.
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.
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.
