Use Fraction Strips to Generate Equivalent Fractions

This Use Fraction Strips to Generate Equivalent Fractions video also includes:

Fraction strips are great visual models that support young mathematicians with learning to compare fractions. The fourth video in this series clearly models how this tool is used with numerous examples of equivalent fractions. Extend the lesson by creating sets of cardstock fractions strips that children can use as they continue learning how to compare fractions. A great resource that will certainly strengthen the fractional number sense of young learners.
