This resource includes a Set of 24 Cards that will help your students practice Comparing Unit Fractions. This is a perfect addition to your fraction unit! Your students will have a great time playing Fraction War with this set of cards. This game makes a great Guided Math Station!
After about 15 minutes of playing this game, 90% of students in my class had mastered this skill! The best part is they had so much fun playing they didn’t even realize they were learning! Unlike a worksheet, this game can be used over and over again to reinforce this concept.
I have included a student recording sheet that you can use for accountability or to take a grade if needed.
They work great at a math station, and they are also a perfect activity to do with your small group. I initially created a card set to practice a skill with a small group instead of using a worksheet and the lesson was so successful that I made more sets! The other benefit is that I don’t have to run copies for each new group (tutoring, intervention group, etc.l) or every year to practice a needed skill.
I have included one set with a color background and another blackline set if you prefer to print on colored cardstock.
This Comparing Unit Fractions Card Game is included in my 4th Grade TEKS Fractions Unit and Bundle.
3.3(H): Compare two fractions having the same numerator or denominator in problems by reasoning about their sizes and justifying the conclusion using symbols, words, objects and pictorial models.
This card game builds the foundation to prepare students for this 4th Grade TEK
4.3(D): Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators and represent the comparison using the symbols >, <, or =
Common Core Alignment:
3.NF.A.3d: Compare two fractions with the same numerator or the same denominator by reasoning about their size. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with the symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g. by using a visual fraction model.
