Strengthen student understanding of fraction models, how to identify fractions on a number line and determine a fraction of a collection with this free worksheet.
What fraction concepts do students need to know in years 3 and 4? These students typically begin to learn about fractions by understanding that they represent parts of a whole. They may learn to identify and name fractions, such as halves, thirds, and quarters, and to recognise them in everyday objects and situations. Students work with different shapes, collections and number lines to represent fractions in different ways.
With this worksheet, students will aim to determine the fraction of a shaded figure, the fraction of a collection, and determine a fraction on a number line.
An answer key is included with your download to make grading fast and easy!
Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding
In addition to independent student work time, use this worksheet as an activity for:
- Guided maths groups
- Lesson wrap-up
- Fast finishers
- Homework assignment
- Whole-class review (via smartboard)
If there are students in need of a challenge, encourage them to think of equivalent fractions for each listed fraction.
For students who need support, consider allowing them to use manipulatives and colouring supplies to help differentiate pieces.
