In this quick math warm-up or transition activity designed for classrooms and small groups, students will determine how many of their group fit a given criteria. For example, you might ask, "What fraction of your group is wearing jeans?" Multiple small groups of 3-5 students might consider the question. Or you might break a class into larger groups of 8-12 or even consider the question as an entire classroom.

Students think about how the question relates to numerator and denominator and present the answer to the class. Teachers may then probe thinking to consider how many in the group remain or compare one small group to another. For a challenge, students think about a fraction addition or subtraction equation that encompasses their findings.

More than 75 different question/topic cards are included to provide daily opportunities for math discourse. Many cards encourage students to learn to know one another better.

Third graders might use this activity to deepen understanding of fractions as numbers. Fourth graders might think about how to build fractions from unit fractions in addition and subtraction. And fifth graders might use the activity for support and review.
