Learn How to Compare Fractions

Introducing the perfect teaching tool for your math class – a printable mini-book that teaches students how to compare fractions with the same numerators and same denominators!

Inside the mini-book, you’ll find a step-by-step guide that walks students through the process of comparing fractions with the same numerators and denominators. Each page is filled with easy-to-understand examples, making it easy for students to follow along and stay engaged.

The mini-book has 20 half-sized pages with notes and practice problems about various strategies for comparing fractions. There are 2 versions of the mini-book. The second version has fill-in-the-blank portions if teachers want students to fill in the notes as they present them.

The mini-books should be reviewed with teacher guidance, especially the fill-in-the-blank version. Teachers can go through the notes and examples, allowing time for students to ask questions and complete the practice tasks. Upon completion, students can color and hold on to the books for future reference.

This resource is intended to be used as an engaging note-taking and practice activity and a reference for students to use throughout the fraction unit.

Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding 

A team of dedicated, experienced educators created this resource to support your math lessons. 

In addition to individual student work time, use this mini-book to enhance learning through guided math groups, whole class lessons, or remote learning assignments. 

If you have a mixture of above and below-level learners, check out these suggestions for keeping students on track with the concepts: 

🆘 Support Struggling Students

To provide additional support, encourage students to use manipulatives often. Assist students in drawing the models when needed. Provide the completed version of the mini-book to eliminate the writing portion as needed.

➕ Challenge Fast Finishers

As an extension, challenge students to make a stop motion video or other form of multimedia using pictures of the mini-book to explain the strategies for comparing fractions. Challenge students to include denominators not yet mentioned, such as fifths or tenths.
