Comparing Fractions Freebie! Fraction Predict and Compare is an engaging partner activity for introducing and practicing the skill of comparing fractions with different denominators. Students place two fraction cards side by side and predict which of the two fractions is larger. They discuss their reasons and then flip over the cards to compare the fraction bars on the back and check the answer. It also works well as a formative assessment which will enable you to decide if your students are ready to move to more advance fraction lessons. Fraction Predict and Compare is a whole group lesson, but it also makes a great math center game or a partner review activity.
