Understand a fraction a/b with a > 1 as a sum of fractions 1/b. (a.) Understand addition and subtraction of fractions as joining and separating parts referring to the same whole.
Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators, e.g., by creating common denominators or numerators, or by comparing to a benchmark fraction such as 1/2. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
There are 10 pages of addition fraction cards (40 cards total) and 10 pages of subtraction fraction cards (40 cards total). The addition and subtraction cards have frames that are 2 different shades of blue for easy organization and pick up. They can be played together or separately. I also added in a page of blank cards in case you wanted to make your own to add to it. I know that sometimes my students like to create their own versions of my games, so the templates make that very simple.
Note - they are still cute when printed off in black and white. You can even choose to just copy on colored paper to save colored ink. :)
Prep: Cut out all of the fractions cards. You may want to laminate them for durability purposes. Lay them face down in a pile or give them out equally to each player.
• 2 players
• Each player turns over one card at a time. The player who has the higher sum/ difference wins. If the cards have an equal sum/ difference then the first player to slap the cards gets to keep them.
