Comparing and ordering fractions
Fourth grade students were working on comparing and ordering fractions (4.NF.2). In order to use math vocabulary in an interactive way, students and Mrs. Alvarez played Hatteras Hop.
Hatteras Hop is played like the game of war in cards where each student turns over a card and compares their card with their opponent. Whoever has the higher value fraction gets to place a piece on the board. The winner covers more of the board with their pieces. Fourth graders, Elijah and Lizbeth played to the end and the winner was Lizbeth.
The students enjoyed playing Hatteras Hop and understand how to compare and order fractions.
