PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This resource gets your students working with building blocks to build and represent different fractions in a fun way.

This resource includes:
• Minds-On Task – this open ended question can be used as a diagnostic, entrance slip, or a full group introduction to the task. Students should have a variety of building blocks available to them so they can explore the answers to this task. I like to do this task whole group, projecting it so all can see, then completing the task together.

• 12 Task Cards – these task cards make a great math station or partner activity. Students will stretch their brains as they represent the given fractions with building blocks (note: in some cases, there are various possible answers – in such cases, ask the students to PROVE they are correct by writing the formula and solving for the surface area). The task cards build on difficulty – at the beginning students are simply asked to find one block to represent a fraction when given the whole. By the last cards, students are building addition sentences with 3 different blocks (fractions) to find the whole. Students can explore and work with the cards as a math center (students do not require building blocks to complete these cards, but I would recommend having them available for students so they can actually explore the concepts in a hands-on way). Including the recording sheet (where students will write the answer) as a requirement for the students to complete allows for an easy formative assessment for you.

• Answer Page – students can self-check their answers during math stations, or you can use the page for more formal checks.

This resource is included in my Fraction Math Center Bundle which contains 3 different hands-on math centers for fractions.
