PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Fractions: Project Based Learning Activity for Upper Elementary

In this Project Based Learning activity, students create one or more games to develop and extend their understanding of fractions. The project encourages student creativity, while also providing guidelines to ensure student accountability of learning and standards.

Fraction PBL is great for:
• Centers and Stations
• Anchor Activities
• Independent Learning Contracts
• Enrichment for Fast-Finishers
• Content Review
• Test Prep
• Family Math Night

Once students have created their games, I often use them as center activities for ongoing practice and remediation (as needed). I've also invited parents to join us in the classroom for a game day or a math night. So much fun!

This download includes:
• a project page for addition and subtraction of fractions
• a project page for multiplication and division of fractions
• a project page combining all four operations
• a student checklist with places for peer evaluation and teacher review. (can be used with all three activity sheets)
• an analytic rubric with detailed descriptors
• 6 pages of detailed teacher tips and tools (including examples and photographs of student-created games)
