Exercise your students’ critical thinking
through FOREST FRIENDS VOCABULARY FRACTIONS, set 1
. The challenge is to create forest terminology using fractional parts of words. This product is CCSS aligned for grades 3 and 4. However, it will be applicable to high performing second graders, as well. Fifth graders, too, will enjoy the challenge.
The task gradually increases in difficulty, transitioning from 2 part clues with pictures and words to 3 part clues with fractional parts from the middle or end of a word. Solving equivalent fractions provides even more challenge. I strongly advise solving several of these tasks together, “thinking out loud” to model the problem solving required.
20 VOCABULARY FRACTIONS task cards
are included in this set. In consideration of your printing costs, gray scale cards are also provided. I recommend printing the gray scale set on colored cardstock to make them more appealing. Additionally, you will find labels for your center folder, a recording sheet master, and an answer key.
