This activity reinforces what fractions mean. Children arrange the 42 cards in each set along a line from 0-1. For example, which side of ¾ does 7/8 go? Why? A given fraction is illustrated in different ways: as a number; as a picture of a familiar object, such as half an apple or pizza; as a diagram or as a fraction of a whole number such as half a box of 6 eggs. There are four sets at different levels which I have listed separately because the file sizes are huge.

 

Set 1 12, 14, 34, 13 ,23, 15, 1

Set 2 16, 56, 18, 38, 58, 78, 112

Set 3 Equivalent fractions: 12, 14, 34, 13, 23, 15, 45

Set 4 Equivalent fractions, including decimals and percentages 12, 14, 34, 15, 45, 18, 110,

 

The equivalent fractions help to explain how the same value may appear in different forms. In set 3, 12 can be matched with 24, 36, 48, and 510, for example.

Set 4 introduces the idea that the same value can appear as a fraction, as a decimal or as a percentage. 12 can be matched with 0.5 and 50% as well as with 3/6 of a box of eggs, for example.
