This resource is scaffolded to help students develop a thorough understanding of fractions on a number line. It includes worksheets, activities, task cards, centers, and more that cover this skill in a variety of ways to help make teaching fractions on a number line easier.
The activities start off basic for beginners, and then get increasingly more difficult. This makes differentiating for the needs of your students much easier. Students start with building a better understanding of how a number line works and practicing with proper fractions with like denominators. The activities get more difficult, having students practice fractions with unlike denominators and fractions greater than 1 on a number line. Eventually, students have to practice putting fractions with different denominators in ascending order. These resources making teaching students about comparing fractions on a number line much easier.
