5.NF.B7 Standards. The kids LOVE IT and more importantly, THEY GET IT! With a variety of visuals and vivid word problems, you can challenge your students to THINK about what they are doing when they divide. "How many of these in one of those?" That is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT to develop any understanding. There are some fun Posters/Notes pages and teaching templates to help reinforce these big ideas. We need to have kids PROVE THEM regularly. There is a "DIY MATCH GAME" Project included. (Directions and Blank template. Copy 3 templates for each student or pair.)
To modify, start with less cards to match
. There are 26 pairs to match, AND they can be used for two different SCOOT games. (Using the long cards is harder. :)
I love match games because they provide more options for the teacher, and a lower entry point for students. This is a bit more, "Low floor; High ceiling" than typical independent centers. Lower level learners may only match cards from a pile of ten pairs. Some learners will match 15 pairs. More students will match ALL pairs AND find the quotients. Follow up with the DIY MATCH GAME Project...
GAME: 26 pairs of cards
2 Recording sheets
DIY MATCH GAME Directions and Blank Card Template
Teaching templates to project
1 sheet of extra sample cards if needed for warm up or review
2 Doodle Notes Posters, one for students to fill in
INTERVENTION IDEA: Have students sort cards by “CARDS THAT SHOW FRACTIONS OF A GROUP” and “CARDS THAT SHOW GROUPS OF FRACTIONS” I also have struggling learners identify images that VISUALLY prove WHY 2/3 = 1/6 etc…
Print desired quantity of model matching card sets.
Cut apart model cards, separating model or visual from equations.
Mix up cards for students to match.
Answer Keys are provided for self-checking.
Blank recording sheets are included. These can be copied for each student (or pair of students) for recording the matches they’ve made.
Students who truly understand fraction multiplication and division, will (eventually) be able to discern between them. Consider MIXING UP these cards with the multiplication cards
to level up! Then after using both, we can mash up the sets and see if they REALLY do get the difference between multiplying "Groups of/Parts of" AND division "How many of these in those?"
