Product Description
Fractions don't have to be confusing and difficult. These equivalent fraction task cards will have your students completely engaged and challenged as they create pattern block pictures equal to a given fraction amount.

Students challenge themselves as they dig deep into fraction concepts and understandings!

There are 20 Task Cards ready-to-go. Just print. Also included are ►additional editable task cards with clear, easy directions for you or your students to create your own challenges for an unlimited “stash” of tasks.

You can target specific fractions as needed with these editable tasks!

The activities use the proportional relationships between Pattern Blocks to build and challenge fraction knowledge. Each task allows for individual creativity while building student understanding of fractions! Perfect for motivating students.

The tasks are ✎ rigorous, creative, hands-on, and fun!

✱ ✱ After completing the center activities, even my struggling math students:
✅ Understood equivalent and improper fractions, mixed numbers

✅ Could name equivalent fractions between halves, thirds, and sixths.

✅ Could visualize adding and subtracting halves, thirds, and sixths

✅ Could visualize common denominators

✅ Could add and subtract halves, thirds, and sixths


Then, when I directly taught these same concepts, students already had background knowledge that helped them comprehend at a much deeper level. The depth of their understanding was amazing! They could answer fractional questions “in their heads” and automatically apply their understandings and make connections to other fractional concepts that I had not yet taught.

There ability to visualize benchmark fractions was truly amazing!

Each task may be completed in multiple ways for differentiation!

Here's What's Included:

☑ 20 different center activities

☑ editable activities

☑ Convince Me page for justifying answers

☑ student work samples

☑ an assessment with an answer key for use after students have done the centers.

☑ pattern block blacklines
