PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This game was designed to give students practice with finding equivalent fractions and has two levels of difficulty. The first set of cards includes a variety of different colors. Use this to make the game easier as the colors provide a hint to the match. The second set includes the same fractions, but all of the hearts are the same color adding to the difficulty.

To begin with, I have the students practice simply sorting the cards and checking their answers. As they become more proficient, I then allow them to play “Memory” with the cards. It’s a little tricky because they have to remember where each card is AND the equivalent fraction, so I allow them to create a cheat-sheet for themselves as they turn cards over.

Included:
•2 Sets of Cards for Two Levels of Difficulty
•Directions for Sorting Activity
•Directions for Memory Game
•A Cheat Sheet for Memory (Students Must Fill Out)
•An Answer Sheet (For You to Monitor Game Time)
•An Answer Key

Skill: Determining equivalent fractions

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.NF.A.1
Explain why a fraction a/b is equivalent to a fraction (n × a)/(n × b) by using visual fraction models, with attention to how the number and size of the parts differ even though the two fractions themselves are the same size. Use this principle to recognize and generate equivalent fractions.
