Looking for a quick, fun way for students to review fractions? Try Clock Fraction Flip Books...mini books made by students...in which fractions on a clock appear to grow or shrink (depending on order in which you compile the pages) as the pages are flipped.
This FREE pdf comes with 3 pages of "clock friendly" fractions. (23 fractions with an extra blank one, just in case.) On the cover page, you can see several samples of Flip Book cards, colored by a student. In the assignment, students:
1. Color each given fraction. The cards come with fraction numbers and blank clocks to color.
2. Cut out the cards.
3. Sequence the cards. They are purposely printed out of order. The set includes equivalent fractions that must be placed sequentially.
4. Staple into a Flip Book. Give it a quick flip-through with your thumb and watch the fraction appear to change; it can grow or shrink, depending on the order you sequence the pages--from smallest to greatest or greatest to smallest.
Please note that the "flip quality" will vary depending on the quality of coloring and cutting. Paper thickness will also affect the outcome.
Use for classroom assignment, homework, or in a Math Station.
Common Core Standards:
While the activity works well with 3rd/4th CCSS Math Fraction Standards, my 5th grade class used the Clock Fraction Flip Book as a way to review previous learning.
