This is a great resource to incorporate into your unit as a guided math center rotation, review exercise, small group work, morning work, remediation, intervention or rti. It can also be used as a quiz, drill, test, or assessment tool to help determine student mastery of the learning target. Whether a student is homeschooled or given this task as a homework assignment, kids will love working on these at home to study and improve their skills.
This puzzle set includes 24 colorful jigsaw puzzles, answer key, and an optional station instruction page with an example. These come as pdf printable sheets that can be printed on card stock and laminated for long-term use. As a suggestion, store them in a sealable gallon storage bag and place them in a foldable bin or tub for students to use throughout the year for enrichment when they finish early. Another idea, for a craft project, is students can glue the completed puzzles into a spiral notebook or journal as a model reference sheet. They can also be glued on a poster for displaying on a bulletin board or as a wall anchor chart.
It covers representing a fraction in several ways including: in numeric form as a numerator over denominator, in word form, on circle and rectangle bar models, fractions of a set, and fractions on number lines. By matching the fraction with its equivalent word and picture representations to solve the problem, students can sort, scoot and match the puzzle pieces to gain confidence in an important and sometimes challenging skill. Your 3rd graders will love to practice and develop strategies using the various methods of representing fractions!
I hope you download and enjoy this engaging hands-on manipulative activity with your students! So set those worksheets aside and give our puzzles a try!
