Understanding the 1/2 Benchmark is a station activity that gets students comparing various fractions to the important benchmark fraction 1/2. Fractions vary from 3rds through 12ths- 33 fraction bars total! Students draw out a fraction bar from the bag, determine its comparison to 1/2, then place it on the correct sorting mat. Student record sheet for accountability is included!
