Hands-On Fractions Center Activities


These hands-on fractions activities are engaging and challenging! Students will build pizzas, towers, and sandcastles with these fractions centers. Set students up with the cards and the printable building mats and let them get to work!

  • All of these come in TWO differentiated options - the circle version includes scaffolded recording sheets and includes all of the fractions on the task cards. The square version has students partition the shapes themselves on the recording sheet, and solve for a missing fraction on the task cards. Color and B&W versions also included.
