The children worked in small groups to match the equivalent fractions. This was interesting as the fractions were all represented in different ways.

They had to use their knowledge of unit and non-unit fractions to find all the groups, but also explain and justify their choices.

The children identified there were representations of one half, one third, one quarter and three quarters.

After matching in their groups, they then played a card game whereby they had to pick a fraction and gather all the cards that showed that fraction by only giving away one card each.
