    Do you want a comprehensive set of Fraction Line Plot resources? This bundle contains task cards, worksheets (perfect for homework or seat work) and an open ended project for higher level thinking. With fun themes such as measuring the sugar in junk food, "how old were you when" line plots, and surveys about extra curricular activities, your students will not only master the standards but attain a grasp of real world applications for fraction line plots.

    Full Descriptions of Each Product Included:

    Fraction Line Plot Worksheets

    Do your students need more practice learning to make a line plot to display a data set of measurements in fractions of a unit? I know when I went over the Common Core Standards CCSS Math 4.MD.B.4 had me scratching my head. We had NO resources to cover it. So I made my own!

    These two worksheets use contexts that fourth graders are likely to be familiar with when it comes to measurement units and fractional parts. The types of questions vary between reading a line plot, creating a line plot with given data, subtracting fractions with like denominators, and justifying their answers. Answer keys are included.

    ❷ Fraction Line Plots Task Cards

    Do your students need more practice with fraction line plots? Are you finding it difficult to find resources that make standard CCSS Math 4.MD.B.4 relevant to the lives of your fourth graders? Check out these fraction line plot task cards that answer the question: How Old Were You When? Kids love talking about themselves and their accomplishments! This inquiry set is sure to be a hit with your students. And not only is it engaging, it is DIFFERENTIATED and LOW PREP. Just check the preview.

    You will get:
    ✅ 8 task cards about swimming
    ✅ 8 task cards about bike riding
    ✅ Another 16 cards WITH HINTS that you can use for differentiation
    ✅ A recording sheet that asks students to include labels with their numeric answers
    ✅ A second recording sheet with scaffolded language that you can use for differentiation
    ✅ An answer key for the recording sheet
    ✅ A blank pair of task cards in case you’d like to skip the recording sheet and record your own students’ first times swimming and/or riding a bike

    The question types cover locating a data point, finding the total number of data points, “how many more/less,” how many within a set range, locating the mode, and interpreting data.

    ❸ Fraction Line Plots: Peer Surveys Open Ended Project

    Are you looking for open ended practice for fraction line plots to challenge your students? This product is designed for students to do the bulk of the work (create thoughtful, thoughtful questions rich with math vocabulary) while the teacher serves as a guide. This project has graphs for 6 separate investigations.

    In addition to the open ended line plot pages, I have scaffolds in place for students who need them:

    ✅ Sample questions
    ✅ Sentence stems for questions (perfect for English Language Learners and other students in need of language supports).
    ✅ Partly completed data collection pages for 6 questions (you may want to have some students create their own version of this page based on the graph they are drawing, and save these pre-made pages for kids who benefit from reduced writing during math tasks).
    ✅ Reference page with definitions (if you don’t have the wall space to post definitions, you can distribute this page instead to glue into notebooks).

    This product is the perfect way to set the bar high in helping students acheive mastery of the standard!

    Make a line plot to display a data set of measurements in fractions of a unit (1/2, 1/4, 1/8). Use operations on fractions for this grade to solve problems involving information presented in line plots. For example, given different measurements of liquid in identical beakers, find the amount of liquid each beaker would contain if the total amount in all the beakers were redistributed equally.
    Make a line plot to display a data set of measurements in fractions of a unit (1/2, 1/4, 1/8). Solve problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions by using information presented in line plots. For example, from a line plot find and interpret the difference in length between the longest and shortest specimens in an insect collection.
