Math teachers, you know that students need spiral review and much of the time, review of material taught in previous grades! That’s why we created the Comparing Fractions Scavenger Hunt for you. At the time of this post we have grades 3-5 published, and grades 5-6 and 7-8 are coming soon!
This scavenger hunt is perfect for comparing fractions with common numerators or denominators in grades 3-5! There are 18 task cards to use in the activity that is engaging and physically active. Fractions are represented in:
Place the cards in order around the room. Use a card number as a starting point for each student.
Remind students that the answer at the bottom of the card does not go with that card.
Fun and interactive! Engaging for students…and rigorous. -Nancy F.
What a great activity for practice or review! -Kimberley Bowlsbey
