Are you looking for a fun page to help your students practice using a half as a benchmark fraction? Do you want to reinforce the skill of finding fractions that are equivalent to one half? Do your students love to color? Then this product has you covered!
This coloring page has fractions that are equivalent to one half. You could even make this a two day project and ask students to color the other fractions (both less than and greater than one half) another day.
The second sheet (I double sided the page when I used it with my class) asks students to explain their thinking. They can choose any 3 fractions from the coloring side to refer back to, which makes the task differentiated for varying ability levels in your classroom.
