Product Description
I took Krista Wallden's s-ELF-less challenge this Christmas season to create a free product using her latest clip art from her Operation Elf giveaway and came up with this activity. I'm very excited to be able to share this with you and hope your students enjoy it.

Students will work as a group to sort the cards and place them on the number line in the correct place. Some will need to stack, one above the other - these are our equivalent fractions. (This is also a great introduction/review of how a ruler works.) Finally, students will record their answers on the number line worksheet. Once all groups have had an opportunity to visit this center, meet as a class and discuss their results. Since you laminated the cards, you may choose to hang them off the white board tray like garland. (Some cheap garland behind it would make a nice background setting.)

Skill: Determining equivalent fractions

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.NF.A.1
Explain why a fraction a/b is equivalent to a fraction (n × a)/(n × 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.

Thanks for visiting and checking out my products!
