⭐ Equivalent Fractions Task Cards Hands On

Each activity allows for individual creativity while building student understanding of fractions!

The activities use the proportional relationships between Pattern Blocks to strengthen and challenge fraction knowledge.

β–ΊAfter completing the center activities, even my struggling math students:

β€’ Understood equivalent and improper fractions, mixed numbers

β€’ Could name equivalent fractions between halves, thirds, and sixths.

β€’ Could visualize adding and subtracting halves, thirds, and sixths

β€’ Could visualize common denominators

β€’ Could add and subtract halves, thirds, and sixths

When I directly taught these same concepts, students already had background knowledge that helped them comprehend at a much deeper level!

Each activity may be completed in multiple ways for differentiation.

Included in this free sample are 4 different center activities, a Convince Me page for justifying answers, and one student work sample.

β€’ The activities are aligned with Common Core Standards 3.NF.1, 4.NF.1, 4.NF.2, 4.NF.3, and 5.NF.1

β€’ The only materials necessary are: center activities, Pattern Blocks, math journal, and pencil.

❀️ Just print, laminate, and use year after year!

Understand a fraction 1/𝘣 as the quantity formed by 1 part when a whole is partitioned into 𝘣 equal parts; understand a fraction 𝘒/𝑏 as the quantity formed by 𝘒 parts of size 1/𝘣.
Explain why a fraction 𝘒/𝘣 is equivalent to a fraction (𝘯 Γ— 𝘒)/(𝘯 Γ— 𝘣) by using visual fraction models, with attention to how the number and size of the parts differ even though the two fractions themselves are the same size. Use this principle to recognize and generate equivalent fractions.
Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators, e.g., by creating common denominators or numerators, or by comparing to a benchmark fraction such as 1/2. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
Understand a fraction 𝘒/𝘣 with 𝘒 > 1 as a sum of fractions 1/𝘣.
Add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators (including mixed numbers) by replacing given fractions with equivalent fractions in such a way as to produce an equivalent sum or difference of fractions with like denominators. For example, 2/3 + 5/4 = 8/12 + 15/12 = 23/12. (In general, 𝘒/𝘣 + 𝘀/π˜₯ = (𝘒π˜₯ + 𝘣𝘀)/𝘣π˜₯.)
