Match That Fraction! - Number Line Activity

PDF | 12 pages|Grades: 3 - 5

A set of 16 match-up cards to practice identifying fractions on a number line.

Looking for a math center activity for your students to practice identifying fractions on a number line? You will definitely want to add this one to your collection!

Print out the cards on cardstock and cut them out on the dotted lines. Store them in a resealable bag to be used again and again. This activity can be played independently or in pairs. Students shuffle the cards and either lay them faceup or facedown in the middle of the playing area (depending on how challenging they would like it). Then, they try matching a fraction with its corresponding number line card. Once they have found a match, they can record their answer on the recording sheet, making for a great way to hold your students accountable during centers!

This resource comes with a set of instructions, a set of 16 match-up pairs, a recording sheet, and an answer key.

This resource was created by Talia Buonopane, a teacher in Massachusetts and a Teach Starter Collaborator.

Resource Updates

  • We have changed one of the match-up cards from 1/6 to 1/5 so that it correctly matches the number line card. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.
