Write a list of fractions with the same denominator, or bottom number, on the board, such as 1/3 and 2/3.
Ask student volunteers to share a fraction comparison that they noticed, For example: 1/3 is less than 2/3.
Write the fraction comparisons on the board, such as 1/3 < 2/3.
Ask small groups to look at the comparisons on the board and determine if they can identify any patterns. For example, if the denominator is the same, the larger numerator, or top number, is the greater fraction.
