Create fraction models with different flags by partitioning rectangles and coloring them according to the guide.
Differentiated Fraction Worksheet
This downloadable resource includes two versions (noted with one or two stars in the right-hand corner). The lower-level version includes four flags that have already been partitioned. Students must follow the directions to color the flags appropriately. There also are two examples where students must partition their own flags.
The higher-level version requires students to partition all of the flags into equal pieces and use their understanding of equivalent fractions to color in the pieces.
An answer key is included with your download to make grading fast and easy!
Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding
In addition to independent student work time, use this worksheet as an activity for:
- Guided math groups
- Lesson warm-up
- Lesson wrap-up
- Fast finishers
- Homework assignment
- Whole-class review (via smartboard)
If there are students who would like an additional challenge, assign the two-star version of this resource. Students must partition each flag as well as use an understanding of equivalent fractions to complete some of the questions.
For students who need additional support, consider using the one-star version of this worksheet (as noted in the right-hand corner of the page). This version provides rectangles that are already partitioned.
