Have a student start at the bottom of the mat by ½. The student JUMPS up each set of fractions. When the student gets to the top of the mat, they jump sideways to the number 1.

Example: Jump on ½. Say, “½.” Jump on 2/2. Say, “2/2.” Jump to the left, land on 1, and say, “2/2 makes a whole.” Move to ⅓ and repeat the same process. Do this for the entire mat. When the student gets to 7/7, have him or her jump to the 1 that is on the right side.
