Fractions for 3rd Grade

This set of differentiated fraction worksheets is designed for 3rd-grade students and includes four pages with various types of fraction activities. Each page focuses on a specific skill, allowing students to practice and build their understanding of fractions in different ways. Make sure to check out both versions to see which would be best for your students!

Page 1: Identifying Unit Fractions

This page is designed to help students identify fractions by looking at the given shapes and identifying the fraction shaded. The shapes include squares, rectangles, circles, triangles, pentagons, and hexagons. Students must use their knowledge of fractions and their visual-spatial skills to identify the fraction represented by each shape correctly.

Page 2: Shading Fractions and Fractions of a Set

This page is designed to help students practice shading in fractions and determining the fraction of a set. Students are given shapes and directions to shade in a given fraction. This page includes a variety of shapes and fractions, ranging from simple halves and thirds to more complex fractions such as three-fourths and three-eighths. Additionally, students are given sets of objects and asked to shade in a specific fraction of the set.

Page 3: Understanding Fractional Parts

With this page, students work to determine how many fractional parts are left after a given number has been taken away. Students will work to solve problems with visual models as well as written scenarios.

Page 4: Word Problems with Fractions

This page is designed to help students apply their understanding of fractions to real-world situations. Students are given word problems that involve fractions. This page includes two word problems where students will practice their problem-solving skills and their understanding of fractions in context.

An answer key is included with your download to make grading fast and easy!
