### Description

Students to be able to work flexibly with fractions, and comparing and sequencing fractions is a part of that understanding. It is not enough for our students to be able to identify and label fractions, they must be able to reason with fractions, apply place value understanding with fractions, and compare fractions with and without number lines.

These **three "hands-on" activities** help build true number sense with fractions.

**What do I need to know?**

- Each activity can be done whole class or in small groups.
- Each also has a follow up independent practice activity that can be used as homework, review, or even as a “quick quiz” to check understanding.
- They are designed to be low ink for easy copying!

**These 3 activities are geared toward teaching and/or reviewing fraction concepts that reinforce the following:**

--Fractions are numbers that let us see “wholes” and “parts”

--We can put fractions in order, just like whole numbers.

--We can estimate with fractions to decide whether they are close to another “benchmark number” such as ½.

--We can use symbols like <, >, and = with fractions.

--We can list fractions that go between two other numbers or fractions.
