Product Description
SIMPLIFYING RATIOS: FRACTIONS
With this resource, your students will be able to simplify ratios that are fractions by writing each fraction with a common denominator to work with simplification of whole numbers. Also included is a fun Scavenger Hunt to reinforce taught content.

This resource will provide your students with a thorough understanding on the concept of simplifying ratios that are fractions. The templates are designed to be kid-friendly with cool kids clip-art and pleasant-to-read font to motivate students. Material that could otherwise prove daunting is presented in a simple easy-to-understand way. I've used this resource successfully with grade 5, grade 6 and yes - grade 7 and 8 students too. Rest assured this resource is student-classroom tested.

SECTIONS INCLUDED:
♦ Booklet Cover featuring a brief overview of concepts learned
♦ Anchor Charts x 2 (color and blackline) on Simplifying Ratios that are fractions
♦ Simplifying Ratios that are Fractions: 24 problems
♦ Simplifying Ratios that are Fractions Scavenger Hunt: 12 Cards (color and
blackline) and 2 recording sheets
♦ 12 blackline Scavenger Hunt Cards on a single page for students to glue in their
notebooks as reference.
♦ Teaching Aid Sheet on Multiples of Numbers 2-10

SCAVENGER HUNT:
My students really enjoyed this activity – I’m sure your students will too! I cut out and laminated the twelve Scavenger Hunt Cards. I then tacked them to the wall with Plasti-Tac. Spread them out or hide them for more fun.

♦ They write the ratio to solve on their recording sheets and look for the answer (top) on another card.

♦ The name of the picture of the card where the answer is found is written below the answer on the Recording Sheet.

♦ Students then solve the next question at the bottom of the card where they found the answer and look for the answer again on another card.

♦All questions are solved this way till the question of the last card loops back to the answer of the first card.

**Clear visual instructions further provided in file. The Scavenger Hunt is an effective way for students to check their working and arrive at the right answer in order to solve the next problem.

******************************************************************
I am confident your students will have sound mathematical knowledge and understanding of simplifying ratios that are fractions after completion of this unit. All the best for the academic year!
