# Equivalent Fractions – Differentiated Math Mazes

Practice your understanding of equivalent fractions with this set of differentiated math mazes.

## Looking for an Equivalent Fractions Worksheet? Try a Maze Instead!

Introducing our set of 3 printable math mazes designed to help students develop their understanding of equivalent fractions. These mazes are perfect for students learning about fractions and needing extra practice with determining equivalent fractions.

Each maze has a fun and engaging design that students will love solving. The objective of each maze is to find the path that leads to the correct answer for each fraction model or numerically-written fraction.

With this set of differentiated mazes, you have the option to give your students one of three mazes. Each maze is designated with either one, two, or three stars in the upper right-hand corner.

1 Star: This version only uses bar models as fraction models.

2 Stars: This version uses a variety of fraction models.

3 Stars: this version only uses numerically-written fractions.

## Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding

In addition to independent student work time, use this worksheet as an activity for:

• Guided math groups
• Lesson warm-up
• Lesson wrap-up
• Fast finishers
• Homework assignment

If there are students who are ready for a bit of a challenge, encourage them to complete the three-star version of this maze. Additionally, consider using the editable version and remove the content from the template. Students can then create their own maze and trade with a classmate.

For students who need additional support, consider assigning the one-star version, as noted in the upper right-hand corner of the worksheet. Students can also use fraction bars to create equivalent fractions in a hands-on way.

Use the dropdown icon on the Download button to choose between the PDF or editable Google Slides version of this resource.

Because this resource includes an answer sheet, we recommend you print one copy of the entire file. Then, make photocopies of the blank worksheet for students to complete.

Turn this teaching resource into a sustainable activity by printing on cardstock and slipping it into a dry-erase sleeve. Students can work their way through the maze and color the correct answers to get to the finish line.
