Product Description
1/2 is an important fraction for students to understand. This resource gives an introduction to the fraction half in order to help students have a solid understanding to build upon.

When students have a solid understanding of 1/2, they are more easily able to understand more difficult fraction concepts and can compare fractions with different denominators more easily.

This resource starts by have students shade pictures, shade fraction bars, and label fractions on a number line so that they can visually see 1/2 and fractions equivalent to 1/2 in a variety of different ways. Then, there are several fun activities - including a cut and paste sort, a fraction maze, and some fraction games - to help your students practice this skill and be able to name fractions that are equivalent to half quickly and without having to think about it.

Included in this packet:
-2 anchor charts
-5 scaffolded worksheets/activities that guide students in their understanding of ½ and fractions equivalent to 1/2
-2 equivalent fraction games, focusing on 1/2

This resource directly addresses the fraction standard 3.NF.A.3.B for 3rd grade students. The scaffolding and extra practice would be particularly helpful for special education students or students that struggle in math.
