Fraction Flags Worksheet – Differentiated

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.

Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding

In addition to independent student work time, use this worksheet as an activity for:
