Fraction war is a fun way to reinforce comparing fractions with your students. Includes two instruction pages: 1: for if you want them to cross multiply, 2: for if you want them to find common denominators. Includes a large set and a new smaller version. This way you can choose which set suits your needs best. This is great to use as a math center!

Correlates with Common Core Standards for 4th Grade:
4.NF.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.
