Get them up and out of their seats! There are 5 different hands on activities in this one packet that requires getting the kids up and moving. Engage all forms of learners with this kinaesthetic, visual and cognitive learning tool.
The skills covered include comparing and matching equivalent fractions, comparing and ordering fractions. With 32 equivalent fraction cards, 40 ordering fractions cards and 12 greater than/less than cards, you can mix up the activities.
Each activity requires thinking, knowledge and practice of fractions and communication skills with partners.
The children will have a card and they will have to wander around the room grouping themselves into equivalent fraction groups.
They will have to show their card and communicate with one another in order to form a human line in order.
Or, added rigour, they will have their card stuck to their backs and then they will SILENTLY have to order themselves into a human line to show the fractions in order.
Additionally, you can use these cards in small guided groups or centres for a matching, comparing and ordering activity.
I have also used these cards to compare with greater than/less than and equal to/unequal. There are cards with those math symbols included.
Mix and match these activities and enjoy the fun of fractions!
You can find many more interactive and engaging activities in my store and on my blog.
