5th Grade, Activity 217: Apply and Extend Previous Understandings of Multiplication and Division to Multiply and Divide Fractions

Materials: What’s My Location sheet, What’s My Location cards

Issue a What’s My Location sheet to each student. Issue a set of the What’s My Location cards to each pair. Instruct students to mix the cards and place them face down in a stack. Have pairs take turns displaying a card. After a card is displayed, both students write the other two forms of the number. After students find all the forms, they then match each number with its location on the number line.
