This file contains four fun fraction activities for your students-two sets of task cards (with and without QR codes), one sorting activity, and one bump game. The activities are specifically aligned with Virginia Math SOL 4.2a and 4.2b, but are great practice for students working on ordering fractions and finding equivalent fractions.
In my classroom, my instructional aide and I provide the devices for scanning QR codes-which means we don't have very many. I included task cards both with and without QR codes in this set. If you have a limited supply of scanning devices, you may want to make one center with QR codes, the other without. Sometimes I print a set without QR codes for a center, then have the QR coded cards available as an answer key for students to scan as they finish a set of task cards.
**Fraction Order-Twelve task cards asking students to order sets of three fractions from least to greatest or from greatest to least. I have included task cards with and without QR codes. A student recording sheet and an answer key are provided.
**Equivalent Fractions-Twelve task cards requiring students to identify fractions that are equivalent to a given fraction, less than the given fraction, or greater than the given fraction. Students are given four fractions and asked to write all of the fractions that are equivalent to one-fourth, or all of the fractions that are less than one-half. Again, both task cards with QR codes and without QR codes are included. An answer key and a student recording sheet are provided.
**Fall Fraction Sort-students are given 24 cards with fractions and asked to sort them into the categories of In Simplest Terms and Needs to be Simplified. They are asked to reduce fractions that are not already in simplest terms.
**Simplest Terms Bump-a fun and fast-paced game for two players requiring students to reduce fractions to simplest terms. Directions for playing are printed on the game. A key for students to check answers is included. Print and laminate the game, give each pair of students 20 two-color counters (or similar markers) and two dice, and you have an activity ready for students who finish their centers.
