Determine an equivalent fraction that matches a fraction model with this set of 24 clip cards.

What Are Equivalent Fractions?

Equivalent fractions are fractions that have different numerators and denominators but represent the same value or amount. In other words, they are different ways of expressing the same part of a whole. To find equivalent fractions, you can multiply or divide a fraction’s numerator and denominator by the same number.

Have your students practice identifying fractions from a visual model and determining an equivalent fraction for each with this set of 24 clip cards.

This resource can be used as a math center, an activity for fast finishers, with your guided math group, or as a whole class activity to practice identifying equivalent fractions.

To play, print this resource on cardstock to ensure durability. Cut along the dotted lines to create small activity cards. Provide your students with the cards and a bucket of clothespins. 

Scaffolding & Extension Tips

Students who need a challenge can create their own clip cards or write any additional equivalent fractions for a card.
