Make finding equivalent fractions fun with an Equivalent Fraction Hunt! Students will search around the room for fractions which name the same amount during this activity (included) and record answers on either an answer sheet or chart (both included). Students are held accountable for proving their work as both answer documents give students a section to prove their work. Don't like putting things on the walls, or maybe you can't? No problem! You can also spread the fractions around the room on top of the students' desks and have them search for the matching pairs.
This activity can also double as a Quiz-Quiz-Trade cooperative learning game! Instead of putting the fraction cards on walls, students can each walk around with one fraction in their hand. When they arrive at a partner, each of them will have to take turns naming a fraction equivalent to their partner's fraction. Or, why not play "Find Someone Who," where kids must pair with someone else who has a fraction equivalent to the one they're holding?
Writing is also incorporated as students must choose one pair of equivalent fractions at the end of the hunt, and explain what they did in order to find out the pair was equivalent.
This can be a whole group or small group activity, a math center, independent assignment, test review, or it even can be used as an assessment. If your students have iPads, they can take pictures of the matching/equivalent fractions. Hold students accountable by asking them to prove why each match is equivalent.
Included in this lesson are:
+ teacher instructions and ideas
+ 2 different types of answer sheets for students to record their equivalent fractions (columns or on a chart)
+ 24 fraction cards (12 matches) in either black and white or with a fun, blue design to make the cards more eye-catching
