Ordering and comparing fractions and decimals isn't the funnest thing for students, so you can make it fun by letting students get active and forming a human number line!
Directions for the teacher: Cut out the fractions and decimals, and randomly distribute them to your students.
Directions for the students: Look at your card, and decide where it belongs on the number line below. Would you move to the left or to the right? Is it closer to 0, 1, 2, or 3? You may want to convert your fraction to a decimal, or convert your decimal to a fraction.
If time allows, we will collect the cards, redistribute them, and repeat activity to see if you can set a new class record!
You will receive 27 rational numbers that you can quickly print and cut, a key to use as a reference, and a set of directions. Your students will love it!
