Third grade teachers looking for fraction activities that are standards-based (Common Core 3.NF.1, 3.NF.2, and 3.NF.3) will love this fraction unit.

This packet contains over 150 pages of materials to use when teaching students about fractions. I created them to use with my own students and to make math creative and fun.

It includes a detailed explanation with photos of how I used these activities in my classroom. The packet can be used as a complete unit or to supplement your current curriculum. It includes hands-on materials, visual aides for the classrooms, games, activities, writing projects, center activities, task cards bulletin board materials and more!

Compare two fractions with the same numerator or the same denominator by reasoning about their size. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with the symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
Express whole numbers as fractions, and recognize fractions that are equivalent to whole numbers. Examples: Express 3 in the form 3 = 3/1; recognize that 6/1 = 6; locate 4/4 and 1 at the same point of a number line diagram.
Recognize and generate simple equivalent fractions, (e.g., 1/2 = 2/4, 4/6 = 2/3). Explain why the fractions are equivalent, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
Understand two fractions as equivalent (equal) if they are the same size, or the same point on a number line.
Explain equivalence of fractions in special cases, and compare fractions by reasoning about their size.
