5.NF.B3 and 5.NF.B4, 5.NF.B6, 5.NF.B7a Excellent enrichment for 4th grade and intervention for 6th grade. To modify, start with less cards to match
. There are 26 pairs in each level. Many games can be made out of 52 PAIRS of cards.
I love match games because they provide more options for the teacher, and a lower entry point for students. This is a bit more, "Low floor; High ceiling" than typical independent centers. Lower level learners may only match cards from a pile of ten pairs. Some learners will match 15 pairs. More students will match ALL pairs AND find the products. Advanced learners may even start at LEVEL II and from there make their own match game cards. Level up by having students choose a card to write a story problem about!
LEVEL I GAME: 26 pairs of cards
LEVEL II Game: 26 pairs of cards
2 Recording sheets
2 Answer sheets
2 Doodle Notes Posters, one for students to fill in
INTERVENTION IDEA: Have students sort cards by “CARDS THAT SHOW FRACTIONS OF A GROUP” and “CARDS THAT SHOW GROUPS OF FRACTIONS” I also have struggling learners identify images that VISUALLY prove WHY 2/3 = 1/6 etc…
Print desired quantity of model matching card sets. (Print pages 4-21 on card stock if desired)
Cut apart model cards, separating model or visual from equations.
Mix up cards for students to match.
Answer Keys are provided for self-checking. (pages 25 & 26)
Blank recording sheets are included. (page 23, 24 ) These can be copied for each student (or pair of students) for recording the matches they’ve made.
Students who truly understand fraction multiplication and division, will (eventually) be able to discern between them. So I am currently making a fraction division card set to match these. Then after using both, we can mash up the sets and see if they REALLY do get the difference between multiplying "Groups of/Parts of" AND division "How many of these in those?"
