Monster Fractions includes 40+ pages of four fraction math centers aligned to the Common Core Standards for 4th and 5th grade. The centers can also be used for review for 6th grade or for challenging advanced learners in 3rd grade. The centers included are:
1. "Finding Freaky Equivalent Fractions"-Students use the task cards to find the number they must multiply the numerator and denominator by to complete the equivalent fraction. Student directions and an answer key to check answers are included.
2. "Monster Half Smack"-Students play a game where they place cards with fractions greater than or less than 1/2 on a board. When a fraction card is flipped that is equal to 1/2, the first player to smack the card keeps it. Student directions and a visual fraction bar model are included for students to check their answers.
3. "Monster Matchmaker"-Students play the memory game or go fish with the fraction cards that have a numerical fraction listed with a visual model. Students must match fractions that are equivalent. Student directions and a visual fraction bar model are included for students to check their answers.
4. "Monster Word Problems"-Students use the task cards to solve word problems with fractions. Cards have word problems that involve adding and subtracting fractions with like denominators, multiplying a fraction by a whole number, and adding and subtracting fractions with unlike denominators. Each task card has a separate answer key with the equation and method of solving the problem modeled. Directions and student sheet to record answers and work are also provided.
