Fraction Flip Books that highlight fact families and equivalencies instead of order.
Fourth and Fifth grade teachers…. Stop making fraction books that put unit fractions in descending or ascending order. Instead, group those fractions in to families. Deeper learning and understanding occurs.
Folding paper strips provides for deeper understanding than when the teacher provides a strip already labeled. They see the connection between the fraction family unit fractions when they fold and label themselves.
I have provided the templates you can use to copy the strips on colored copy paper.
10 strips per page. Unit fractions 1/2, 1/3, 1/5, and 1/12 provided.
You fold to create the other fractions in the family.
