I made this activity to use as a problem-solving activity after I've taught the basic concepts within our fractions unit. In this activity, students are given 10 fraction cards and a strip of paper, and they are asked to correctly place the cards on the strip of paper to form a fraction number line. Students must use their knowledge of what is a fraction, comparing fractions, simplifying fractions, and equivalent fractions to correctly place each fraction.
This file contains teacher directions, the student fraction cards, and a scoring rubric. Teachers will need to use bulletin board paper to create the number lines for students.
