This resource will help your students practice Benchmarking Fractions to 1/2. This game makes a great Guided Math Station! Your students will have a great time playing Emoji Sliders: Comparing Fractions to 1/2 while building their fraction number sense.
There are 2 levels of the game to make differentiation easy!
My Emoji Sliders games are quick paced and the student in the lead changes every round. This is what makes all of my Emoji Sliders games a student favorite. Unlike a worksheet, this game can be used over and over again to reinforce this concept.
I have included one set with a color background and another blackline set if you prefer to print on colored cardstock.
This Comparing Fractions to 1/2 Game is included in my 4th Grade TEKS Fractions Unit and Bundle.
Benchmarking to 1/2 is a foundational skill for comparing fractions, and it is also a subskill for estimating sums and differences with fractions.
4.3(D) Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators and represent the comparison using the symbols >, <, or =
4.3(F) Evaluate the reasonableness of sums and differences of fractions using benchamark fractions 0, 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, and 1, referring to the same whole.

4.NF.A.2: Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators, e.g., by creating common denominators or numerators, or by comparing to a benchmark fraction such as 1/2. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
