Looking for an activity that will keep the fun in 4th grade math? Here’s a set of 24 math task cards that will strengthen your fourth grade students’ skills identifying equivalent fractions with denominators of 2 through 12.
Choosing from four fractions, your students will match equivalent pairs of fractions, discovering the Secret Fraction by eliminating three of the options. With each riddle task card they complete, your students will find and confirm four sets of equivalent fractions for four numbers. They'll have a great time and won’t even realize that they’ve completed 96 sets in all!
Because the graphics in this set aren't seasonal, you'll find yourself using this resource at any time during the school year, whenever you need it!
A student recording page, answer key, and themed board game are also included.
Here are some ways that you might use the task cards in your classroom:
► Use in a math center for individual or partner work
► Use with your document camera for whole class review or to focus attention at
the beginning of your math lesson
► Use as a skills review rotation (aka "Scoot"), individually or with partners, with
students moving to stations around the classroom to solve the clues
► Use for morning “bell ringers”
► Use as challenge work or for early finishers
► Use as an activity with classroom volunteers – they can complete as few or as
many as time allows!
► Print in black and white to use in interactive notebooks. Give one card to each
student and have them write about their thinking in solving the riddle.
