Learning Objective

Students will simplify fractions. Students will order fractions from least to greatest.


This engaging activity puts a fun spin on reviewing how to simplify and compare fractions! It also makes a creative bulletin board or school hallway display!

Students begin by completing two worksheets:

1. Simplifying Fractions

2. Comparing Fractions (ordering from least to greatest)

Then they use their completed worksheets to assemble their craftivity.

Answer keys and complete, student-friendly directions are included.

Check out the preview!

I created this craftivity as a follow-up activity to my first 4th Grade Fraction PowerPoint. Click on the following link if you want to check it out:

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators, e.g., by creating common denominators or numerators, or by comparing to a benchmark fraction such as 1/2. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
Explain why a fraction 𝘢/𝘣 is equivalent to a fraction (𝘯 × 𝘢)/(𝘯 × 𝘣) by using visual fraction models, with attention to how the number and size of the parts differ even though the two fractions themselves are the same size. Use this principle to recognize and generate equivalent fractions.
