In each center, students practice critical math skills all centered around fractions. This product includes 6 different centers. They centers can also be used as whole group instruction as well. Skills that are reviewed are equivalent fractions, reducing fractions, fractions to decimals, fractions to percents, addition of fractions, subtraction of fractions, and cooking skills! This file includes:

  • A sign to get kids excited
  • Letter home to parents
  • Center Directions
  • 2 Versions of the brochure for the centers. Students will record work in the brochure
  • 3 versions of FRACT-O!---fraction bingo

The 6 centers are:

Standards

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Use decimal notation for fractions with denominators 10 or 100. For example, rewrite 0.62 as 62/100; describe a length as 0.62 meters; locate 0.62 on a number line diagram.
Use ratio reasoning to convert measurement units; manipulate and transform units appropriately when multiplying or dividing quantities.
Find a percent of a quantity as a rate per 100 (e.g., 30% of a quantity means 30/100 times the quantity); solve problems involving finding the whole, given a part and the percent.
Solve real world problems involving division of unit fractions by non-zero whole numbers and division of whole numbers by unit fractions, e.g., by using visual fraction models and equations to represent the problem. For example, how much chocolate will each person get if 3 people share 1/2 lb of chocolate equally? How many 1/3-cup servings are in 2 cups of raisins?
Interpret division of a whole number by a unit fraction, and compute such quotients. For example, create a story context for 4 ÷ (1/5), and use a visual fraction model to show the quotient. Use the relationship between multiplication and division to explain that 4 ÷ (1/5) = 20 because 20 × (1/5) = 4.
