A 3 page worksheet using a labeled fractions wall to investigate equivalence.
Students use the labeled fractions wall provided to complete the following tasks:
- finding equivalent fractions for one half, one third, one quarter and one fifth
- ordering fractions from smallest to largest
- comparing fractions
- coloring and labeling an example of an equivalent fraction.
A version of this resource with an unlabeled fractions wall is also available.

Explain equivalence of fractions in special cases, and compare fractions by reasoning about their size.
Explain why a fraction a/b is equivalent to a fraction (n × a)/(n × b) by using visual fraction models, with attention to how the number and size of the parts differ even though the two fractions themselves are the same size. Use this principle to ...
Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators, e.g., by creating common denominators or numerators, or by comparing to a benchmark fraction such as 1/2. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions ref...
