Product Description
In this game, children will learn about equivalent fractions (fractions with unlike denominators) by making "Fair Trades." All the children will start out with a jumble of fractional pieces, although they all add up to the same length (1 whole strip).

If all those pieces were rearranged, you would have a strip of halves, another of thirds, sixths, eighths, and twelfths. But in order to get all like denominators, they are going to need to trade with other children.

The trick in this activity is the fact that all the pieces are drawn to scale for you. They are already arranged so that the jumble of parts on each strip actually adds up to 1 whole, and there are exactly enough of each denominator to add up to 1 whole correctly. This product will save you a lot of time trying to make your own fractional scramble!

This packet includes:
★ 1 black and white manipulatives sheet for easy copying
★ 1 color manipulatives sheet (same as above, in case you have a color printer)
★ Instructions, including a short script to help you model game play for your students
★ 1 sample answer sheet
★ Tips for cleanup and storage

You will need:

* Scissors
* Small zip top bags for storage (optional)
* Cardstock (optional)
