Comparing Fractions

This Comparing Fractions lesson plan also includes:

Learners compare three sets of fractions using the greater than, less than, and equal signs. To justify their answers, a drawing is also required that illustrates their reasoning. Including fractions with like and unlike denominators, as well as like and unlike numerators, this activity provides a brief, but well-rounded practice comparing fractions. Great for 3rd graders developing their sense of fractions, or 4th and 5th graders in need of a quick review. As added support, consider reviewing different ways of modeling fractions prior to implementing the activity. Follow-up with a short discussion highlighting the different methods learners used.
