This task card resource gets your students thinking about and working with visualizing and representing fractions in a fun, hands-on way.
Students will need a pencil and pattern blocks (hexagon, rhombus, trapezoid, triangle) to complete this activity.
This resource includes:
Minds-On Task – this page can be used as a diagnostic, entrance slip, or a full group introduction to the task. I like to do this page with the whole group, projecting it so all can see, then letting the students work on individual whiteboards or their notebooks to answer the task.
12 Task Cards – these task cards make a great math station or partner activity, or you can also project each card and have students work on whiteboards for a full group activity or exit slip after a lesson. I like to use these to set up a math station with the task cards and have students answer on the provided recording sheet 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.
