Product Description
This item includes three activities that you can use in your classroom to help students understand dividing fractions

Activity 1---Dividing whole numbers by fractions
Students partner up to match word problems, models, and algorithms. Cards and Answer Key included.

Activity 2---Dividing fractions by whole numbers
Student groups play "Alien" to see who can score the most points solving the cards. Problem cards are divided among group members. Each player hold their cards in their hand with the blank side facing other players. One player draws a card from another to solve. The game is over when one player no longer has cards in their hand. That player receives a five point bonus. Cards and Answer Key included.

Activity 3---Dividing fractions by fractions
Student groups spin to create two fractions. They divide the fractions on whiteboards. They swap problems with another group to solve. Students write a word problem for one of their problems. Spinner included.

A materials list is provided on the direction page of everything you will need.

My students love using these activities. Especially "Alien". I hope your students will love them too!
