Using puzzles was such a fun way to help my daughter practice and recognize place value, I decided to create some more fun puzzles! These puzzles are meant to help students understand fractions, as well as practice learning equivalent fractions.

Learning how to rewrite the fraction 2/8 as 1/4 is an important skill, and I think it is equally important that students understand **early on** that they are NOT changing the fraction. These two fractions (2/8 and 1/4) mean exactly the same thing. That is why for the equivalent fraction puzzles, a visual is given to link the two fractions together.

If your students are just beginning fractions, this set includes 12 2-piece puzzles that require matching the fraction with the picture.

But if your students are beyond that, there are also 12 3-piece puzzles that require matching 2 equivalent fractions with the picture.

Again, you could print these puzzles on card stock and laminate for durability and multiple uses, or you could simply have students glue the completed puzzles to construction paper and hang them as fun posters to help them recognize equivalent fractions in the future!

I hope you find this resource fun and useful, and if you are looking for more advanced practice with fractions (and decimals) check out the fraction worksheets.
