Become fraction detectives to practice equivalent fractions!
Transform your classroom into a crime scene! Pick a fraction that is "wanted" (for a number-napping of course). That fraction has escaped police custody and gone into disguise! Police have brought in two suspects, and your detectives will need to prove if they are equal or not to the "wanted" fraction. Students will practice showing strategies to prove equivalent fractions and also practice writing about their mathematical thinking. Mustaches and detective badges included.. crime tape sold separately.
