Introducing Equivalent Fractions:

If you are just introducing your kids to fractions, I highly recommend using a variety of tools and hands on manipulatives to help them visualize fractions and see why some fractions are equivalent.

This matching game includes 32 different cards to practice recognizing and matching a variety of equivalent fractions.

To create it, I first printed the cards on scrapbook paper because it is thicker and had a cute design on the back, so the apples didn’t show through.

You certainly don’t need fancy paper, but I would suggest at least using card stock (again, so the cards are not see through). I then laminated the cards for added durability, and now they will (hopefully!) last a long time and can be used by all four of my kids! 🙂

To Play the Apples Equivalent Fractions Matching Game:

First, arrange the cards face down in equal rows.

Player one then turns over 2 cards. If the fractions on the apples are equivalent, player one gets to keep the match. Otherwise, they turn the cards back over and it is player two’s turn.

Player two then does the same thing, and play continues until all the matches have been found.

The player with the most matches wins!

Please note, there are 18 possible matches, but some fractions have multiple options. For example, there are three different cards that are equivalent to 1/2. This is to help students see patterns and understand that there are many ways (infinite, actually) to represent various fractions.

If you don’t have multiple players, this could also be used independently as a quiet review activity.
