# 6th Grade Unit 3: Fractions (Part 3 -Fraction Stations Set 2)

I blogged here about the setup for fraction stations and here about the first set of fraction stations.  Below are links to many of the resources I use for the second set of fraction stations.  I’ll give the same caveat I did in my post on the first set -not all of the activities here are great.  I know that, but it’s a start.  My goal is to now gradually start improving each station.

The first set of fraction stations is solely review concepts.  The first year I did it, I liked how it was going so much and I felt that the concepts I was going to be teaching next would work well in another round of stations, so I created a second set of mostly new concepts to my students.

Here is the checklist I used.

##### 3.  Decimal to Fraction
###### Activities:
• IXL
• QR Cards
• I *think* I created these, but I can’t remember.  If anyone finds them online, please let me know so I can give credit.
• Dice
• Roll dice to create a decimal.  Convert to fraction.
• Quizlet
• Desmos
• Card Sort
• I pulled out the percents.

##### 5.  Order Fractions
###### Activities:
• IXL
• Order in the Court (The directions are on page 33 of this handout, similar to one I received at a conferences years ago.)

##### 6.  Estimating Fractions
###### Activities:

Once a student has completed all of the stations, they are able to work on the puzzle/enrichment station.  Here is a list of many of the things available to students.  I’ve found that students like if I don’t put everything out right away and add a couple new things everyday.
