A set of 16 match-up cards to practise identifying fractions on a number line.
Looking for a hands-on fraction activity for your students? You will definitely want to add this one to your collection!
Use this fractions resource to consolidate your students’ understanding of representing fractions on a number line.

This resource comes with a set of instructions, a set of 16 match-up cards, a recording sheet, and an answer key.
