These 16 task cards allow students to practice using the benchmarks of 0, 1/2, and 1 to compare fractions (aligned with Virginia SOL 4.2a). Students can use these task cards independently, with a partner, or in a small group. They will record their answers on an answer sheet and check their work using an answer key (both are provided).
This is a great activity for math centers, early finishers, review, and morning work.
Cards 1-8: identifying the benchmarks that fractions are closest to
Cards 9-12: using benchmarks to compare fractions
Cards 13-16: using benchmarks to compare and order fractions
You can print the cards in color or grayscale and laminate them for durability. Directions for preparation and use are included.
