Equivalent Fractions – Games for the Classroom

Are your students in need of additional practice with equivalent fractions? They still may be working on remembering to multiply or divide the numerator and denominator to create a fraction of equal value. Teach Starter has a set of cards that are ready for you to print and use in your classroom today!  

How to Use Our Equivalent Fraction Cards

     Whole-Class Activity

Provide each student with a fraction card. Have students stand up and circulate around the room to find their “fraction team.” This means they must gather with all the other students with a fraction equivalent to the one on their card. Once they have found all the members of their fraction team, they must sit down. The winner is the first fraction team to find all their correct members.

     Whole-Class Activity 

Provide each student with a fraction card. Draw an open number line on the dry-erase board. Have students attach their fraction where it belongs. 

     Partner Activity 

  • Memory – students match equivalent fractions to win the pair. 
  • Snap – students snap when equivalent fractions appear on top of one another to win the pair. 
  • Go Fish – students ask their partners for equivalent fractions to make a pair. 

     Individual Activity 

Provide each student with a fraction card. Then, have them create a poster about their fraction. It must include everything previously taught.
