Activity Instructions

Have students determine how far they are from the whole by giving them a fraction card and having them walk the fraction boxes until they get to the whole. For example, if they are given ⅜, ask, “If you’re on 3/8ths, how many more 8ths until you reach the whole?” Have them solve the problem by walking up the mat and counting the 1/8ths they hop or step.

Additional questions to ask the students (You may also choose to write these on index cards and have students draw a card):
If you’re on 4/5ths, how many more 5ths until you reach the whole?
If you’re on 2/8ths, how many more 8ths until you reach the whole?
If you’re on 4/10ths, how many more 10ths until you reach the whole?
If you’re on 3/6ths, how many more 6ths until you reach the whole?
If you’re on 5/7ths, how many more 7ths until you reach the whole?
If you’re on 1/3rd, how many more 3rds until you reach the whole?
If you’re on 1/4th, how many more 4ths until you reach the whole?
If you’re on 3/9ths, how many more 9ths until you reach the whole?
If you’re on 2/5ths, how many more 5ths until you reach the whole?
If you’re on 6/10ths, how many more 10ths until you reach the whole?
