### Description

Are you looking for a fun game for comparing and ordering fractions that you can easily use for differentiation? Then check out this bundle! The gameplay is the same whether your students are ready for mixed denominators, evenly divisible denominators, or just starting out with the same denominators. The print version can be used with small groups who are seated, or better yet, if you want to get them up and moving. And if you need a digital version, each game includes a link to a Google Slides version that you can assign in Google Classroom.

This bundle includes:

1. Line Up! Compare and Order Fractions: Pretest/Posttest

2. Line Up! Compare and Order Fractions: Same Numerators

3. Line Up! Compare and Order Fractions: Divisible Denominators

4. Line Up! Compare and Order Fractions: Mixed Denominators

5. Line Up! Compare and Order Fractions: Same Denominators

PRETEST/POSTTEST

This product will get your kids up and moving, talking about fractions, and justifying their responses with reasons and details. This “level” is perfect for a pretest or posttest for your fractions unit because there it incorporates a wide range of denominators.

There are two ways to divide your class, depending on how many students you have. This game has enough cards for 40 students to play. The common fractions for fourth grade are included (halves, thirds, fourths, fifths, sixths, eighths, ninths, tenths and twelfths). There are also some improper fractions later in the pack if you choose to include them.

The design of this product will save you ink and paper. All you need is black ink and 8 sheets of colored card stock. Cut out the cards, laminate only if you wish, and after you play, store in an envelope for next year. Easy, low prep, cheap, and best of all, engaging!

Update! This product now includes a digital version that students can use on Google Slides. I like to use it as a timed pretest and post test. You will receive a link in the pdf with directions on how to copy it onto your Google Drive.

SAME NUMERATORS

This product will get your kids up and moving, talking about fractions, and justifying their responses with reasons and details. So if your students need to practice comparing and ordering fractions with the same denominators, check it out!

The common fractions for fourth grade are included (halves, thirds, fourths, fifths, sixths, eighths, ninths, tenths and twelfths).

Paper Version

Includes: 6 printable pages.

To organize: Copy each page on a different colored paper. Then create groups of 8 or 9 students Cut out the cards, laminate only if you wish, and after you play, store in an envelope for next year. Easy, low prep, cheap, and best of all, engaging!

Teaching tip: When there is a BIG difference between the numerator and denominator in a fraction (as long as it’s not an improper fraction) then the fraction is small.  For example, 11/12 is almost a whole, but 1/12 is a tiny slice.

To play: Have students in each group line up in order from least to greatest (Tip: Direct students where the line "starts." For example, if you have windows on your side of the room and a door on the opposite side, explain "the smallest fraction should be closer to the windows and the largest fraction should be closest to the door). This will help everyone's frame of reference in later rounds when they are combining.

Digital Version

Includes: 9 playable slides, a directions slide, and an answer key

To access: This product now includes a digital version that students can use on Google Slides. You will receive a link in the pdf with directions on how to copy it onto your Google Drive.

To play: Students begin with tip from “fellow superheroes.” Each slide features a different numerator on a fun comic style cityscape. The superheroes rejoin students on the last slide to celebrate the completion of the task.

DIVISIBLE DENOMINATORS

This product will get your kids up and moving, talking about fractions, and justifying their responses with reasons and details. So if your students need to practice comparing and ordering fractions with easily divisible, different denominators, check it out! The common fractions for fourth grade are included (halves, thirds, fourths, fifths, sixths, eighths, ninths, tenths and twelfths) and carefully combined to provide practice finding the least common multiples (like 3rds and 12ths) without frustration (like 5ths and 12ths).

Paper Version

Includes: 6 printable pages.

To organize: Copy each page on a different colored paper. Then create groups of 12 or more students. Cut out the cards, laminate only if you wish, and after you play, store in an envelope for next year. Easy, low prep, cheap, and best of all, engaging!

Teaching tip: Use the least common multiple for 2 denominators to make equivalent fractions.  For example, when comparing 4/6 and ½, change ½ to 3/6.  We know 4/6 is greater than 3/6.

To play: Have students in each group line up in order from least to greatest (Tip: Direct students where the line "starts." For example, if you have windows on your side of the room and a door on the opposite side, explain "the smallest fraction should be closer to the windows and the largest fraction should be closest to the door). This will help everyone's frame of reference in later rounds when they are combining.

MIXED DENOMINATORS

This product will get your kids up and moving, talking about fractions, and justifying their responses with reasons and details. So if your students need to practice comparing and ordering fractions with mixed denominators, check it out! The common fractions for fourth grade are included (halves, thirds, fourths, fifths, sixths, eighths, ninths, tenths and twelfths) and carefully combined to use a variety of strategies (not just LCM) to order fractions.

Paper Version

Includes: 7 printable pages.

To organize: Copy each page on a different colored paper. Then create groups of 7 or more students. Cut out the cards, laminate only if you wish, and after you play, store in an envelope for next year. Easy, low prep, and best of all, engaging!

Teaching tip: Find the equivalent fraction for ½ first, and put it near the middle.  Find the fraction with the smallest difference between the numerator and denominator next (such as 6/7).  That is the largest fraction.  Find the fraction with the biggest difference between the numerator and denominator next (such as 1/11).  That is the smallest fraction.  Find equivalent fractions for the few remaining fractions.

To play: Have students in each group line up in order from least to greatest (Tip: Direct students where the line "starts." For example, if you have windows on your side of the room and a door on the opposite side, explain "the smallest fraction should be closer to the windows and the largest fraction should be closest to the door). This will help everyone's frame of reference in later rounds when they are combining.

Teaching tip: When the denominators are the same, the smallest numerator is the smallest fraction.  In other words, 1/11 is smaller than 10/11.

To play: Have students in each group line up in order from least to greatest (Tip: Direct students where the line "starts."

### Standards

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Understand a fraction 1/𝘣 as the quantity formed by 1 part when a whole is partitioned into 𝘣 equal parts; understand a fraction 𝘢/𝑏 as the quantity formed by 𝘢 parts of size 1/𝘣.
Understand a fraction as a number on the number line; represent fractions on a number line diagram.
Represent a fraction 1/𝘣 on a number line diagram by defining the interval from 0 to 1 as the whole and partitioning it into 𝘣 equal parts. Recognize that each part has size 1/𝘣 and that the endpoint of the part based at 0 locates the number 1/𝘣 on the number line.
Represent a fraction 𝘢/𝘣 on a number line diagram by marking off 𝘢 lengths 1/𝘣 from 0. Recognize that the resulting interval has size 𝘢/𝘣 and that its endpoint locates the number 𝘢/𝘣 on the number line.
Explain equivalence of fractions in special cases, and compare fractions by reasoning about their size.
