Product Description

This complete lesson packet helps students develop their number sense specifically focusing on the size of fractions. This lesson explores the use of zero, one half, and one whole as benchmarks for estimation.

The lesson offers 8-pages of practice that builds slowly in complexity to challenge all levels of learners in your class. The lesson begins with an introduction to small (close to zero), medium (close to one half), and big (close to one whole) fractions. Then it has students sort fractions into various buckets based on size. After practice sorting, the buckets are removed and students begin using estimation to order fractions on the number line. By the end of the lesson students will be ordering fractions without a number line, using only estimation. Because it builds slowly, students will feel successful and confident at every step.

The lesson also includes teaching notes, common misconceptions, and best practices for implementation.

Best of all it requires NO PREP! Just PRINT and TEACH.

This complete lesson packet includes:

→Instructional Guide

→Partner Problem Set

→3 pages of Independent Practice

This lesson is perfectly aligned to third grade 3.NF.A.3.D or fourth grade 4.NF.A.2 but could also be used as a fraction review lesson for 5th - 8th grade. No matter what level math you teach, comparing and ordering fractions is an essential foundation for all future rational number concepts.
