Product Description
This is an 8 page PDF file of modeling activities. After I initially taught basic fraction skills (comparing, equivalent, simplifying), I found that my students still lacked a basic knowledge of fractions. They could do the math, but didn't understand why! I created these sheets to support the understanding of the math. I found that after connecting the math and the models, students had a better understanding of fractions.

Pg. 1 - Coloring Fractions: I have divided the models already. Students will need to identify and shade the numerators.
Pg. 2 - Coloring Fractions: Students will need to split the model according to the denominator and then shade the numerator.
Pg. 3, 4, and 5 - Comparing Fractions using Models. Students will need to split all models and shade the numerators, then use <, >, and = to compare the fractions. I had students show their work to compare fractions using LCM to find a new denominator on a separate sheet of paper to connect the math to the models.
Pg. 6 - Equivalent Fractions: Students will need to draw the first fraction given, then draw two more equivalent fractions. I had students show me their work on a separate sheet of paper or on the back of the sheet to connect the math to the models.
Pg. 7 and 8 - Simplifying Fractions: Students will need to shade the unsimplified fraction, then use the provided T charts to find a GCF and simplify. Students will then shade the simplified fraction.
