Match That Fraction! – Number Line Activity

PDF | 12 pages|Grades: 2 - Lower - 4

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.

Make me a match!

This activity can be played independently or in pairs.

Students shuffle the cards and either lay them either face up or face down in the middle of the playing area (depending on how challenging they would like it). Then, they try matching a fraction with its corresponding number line card. Once they have found a match, they can record their answer on the recording sheet.

Why not increase the challenge for your more capable students by having them time themselves to find all the matches!

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