Equivalent Fractions

Equivalent fractions can be tricky. So my class made this flip book visual to use as a reference.
For the flip book I just had the students use 5 sheets of ditto paper approximately 1 inch apart. Then they fold down the top and staple it.  Here's a handy link showing how to make the foldable. Once the foldable is made I use this fraction bar printable that students glue on each step of the flip book. Then they cut the fractional lines on each step to make it manipulative. You might also be interested in my Equivalent Fraction Kite Project. It's a great way to reinforce fraction equivalency while doing art and patterning.
