Fractions are an incredibly abstract concept, and students need lots of concrete experiences to help them build mental pictures of fraction numbers and visualize equivalent fractions. A variety of manipulatives should be used, and this resource focuses on the use of fraction tiles to solve equivalent fractions puzzles.
Note: For the print version, fraction tiles should be provided to students. If you don't have fraction tiles, use this link to download a PDF with printable fraction tiles. The digital version has movable fraction tile pieces.
- 24 equivalent fraction task cards with missing digits designed to be used with fraction tiles
- Separate interactive Google Slides file with slides for each of the task cards and movable fraction tile pieces
Includes both downloadable print versions of the task cards as well as a digital version with movable fraction tiles for use with Google Classroom™!

What are others saying?
✅ My student loved this activity. The visual representations of equivalent fractions were just the thing he needed to understand this difficult concept. I work with students with varying disabilities and since our math book jumps right to the abstract concept they often struggle with understanding. This resource has definitely made teaching this concept easier.
✅ I taught virtual and face-to-face this year. This was a nice resource for those at home to use who didn't have fraction tiles. (Or those that had to put their tiles away for not using them "appropriately" lol) I used with my 5th graders to review equivalent fractions. (Texas)
