Product Description
This resource will help your students understand that all fractions can be decomposed to a sum of unit fractions. A unit fraction is a fraction that has a numerator of 1 over a given denominator. Students will be able to practice this activity in a whole group setting, small groups, or even independently. By having visual models in this resource to refer to, students will gain a better understanding of fractions and how a sum of a fraction can be written in multiple ways. Decomposing Fractions can be a very difficult concept for students to grasp but having students understand unit fractions really gets the balling rolling for most students.

Whether you are in need of a “hook” or an opening to instruction, something to use in direct small group instruction, independent practice, or doing math centers, these task cards will do the trick.

Task Cards allow me to do a variety of activities in my classroom. Sometimes I post different cards around the room for a scavenger hunt. Other times I use them to play the game Scoot. Whatever it takes to get my students active and engage, I’m all for it.

Below is what is included in this product:
