This is an activity that I have used with my students for years. It helps them see that a fraction can be found in many ways. It opens their eyes to equivalent fractions. I highly suggest that this activity is used with a number line as well as with decimals all at the same time. Depending on the grade level, the activity can become harder and harder. For example: In first grade it could be used only for identifying fractions while in Fourth grade it could mix equivalent fractions and decimals.
"Spot the Fractions" can be used in several ways:
1) Make a collage. Cut pieces for each student. The students glue pieces in construction paper. Label the fractions (and equivalent fractions.
2) Make a booklet for each fraction. Cut pieces for each student. The students glue pieces in a booklet. Label the fractions (and equivalent fractions).
3) Use as a worksheet with each fraction.
