UPDATE: I've added Recording Sheets so that these puzzle cards can be used as Task Cards too!
Fraction Circle Puzzle Cards work well as a center activity, as task cards, or as an assignment for early finishers. These cards were designed so that students can work on them individually and check their answers with those on the back. They work with fraction circles that you can find at your local teacher's supply store, or you can print the included Fraction Circles. This set contains the fractions 1 whole, 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 1/5, 1/8, 1/10, and 1/12.
