This fraction bundle was created to have students explore fractions in meaningful ways. This product contains seven products in one!
➽ See a movie preview here.
1. Visual Fractions:
Students will identify fractions, explore how to create equivalent fractions, and add fractions with visual models. Students will be asked to think critically and take apart and put together fraction models. A sample student response sheet is included with this product and there are multiple solutions.
2. Cut Out and Match:
Students will explore fractions with this hands-on activity. This is a good way to help cement students' mathematical understanding of fractions. I've seen this product used as a whole class activity and in small student groups. While completing this activity, students will represent fractions in multiple ways. Students will identify, cut out, construct fractions and create number models. What's great is that they're are multiple solutions to this activity. I've also included a sample process chart to help provide some use ideas.
3. Fraction Math Station:
Students will solve 12 different math station fraction problems. I've posted these cards all round the room and used them for stations. Students spend 3-5 minutes and then rotate around the classroom. While completing this activity, students will, find fractions on a number line, find equivalent fractions, compare fractions using < > or = and rename fractions greater than one.
4. Holiday Fractions:
Students will explore Valentine's Day and fractions. Students will identify fractions on number lines, compare fractions, find equivalent fractions and create fraction number sentences. I've used this activity in January and February but it's great practice at anytime of the year.
5. There are so many different ways to represent fractions. This packets includes the five different ways that fractions are represented.
6. This packet is designed to challenge third and fourth grade students. Students are given a muffin recipe and asked to modify it based on the amount of servings. Students will divide and multiply fractions in the process.
7. This activity is perfect for students that need enrichment. It has a pre-algebra component that asks students to try multiple numbers before finding the actual solution.
