Economics Links

The first five squares are the BEST videos to teach economics to students. Yes, they're VERY dated, but I have had adult students come up to me and say, "Let me tell you about Econ, Econ ... let me tell you about Econ ..." They may be dated, but they definitely teach the content. I always preface them by apologizing to my students ... :)

Fractions :  I Have … Who Has?
Be sure to shuffle cards before playing. Notice the asterisks on the answer key. You may want to give more than one card to your advanced readiness students. Students with early readiness may need partners for support.

4th Grade :  Numbers and Operations – Fractions
(limited to fractions with denominators 2, 3, 4 ,5, 6, 8, 10, 12; some mixed numerals included)
4.NF.1  Explain why a fraction a/b is equivalent to a fraction (n x a)(n x b) by using visual fraction models, with attention to how the number and size of the parts differ even though the two fractions themselves are the same size. Use this principle to recognize and generate equivalent fractions.

Note:

The symbol * means this is easier card. The *** symbol means this is a more difficult card. You may want to mark your cards to make this game easier to hand out. I didn’t mark them because I don’t like my students to figure out my system. J
