10 Exciting Equivalent Fractions Puzzles Worksheets
In the following section, you will find ten fun and exciting equivalent fractions puzzles. All of these puzzles will require you to think differently to find the respective equivalent fractions. Take your pencil and safety scissors.
Calculate in your notebook to find answers for all the equivalent fractions puzzles. Happy puzzling.
Introduction to Equivalent Fractions
Before starting to solve the puzzles, we will first know what an equivalent fraction is.
When two different fractions give the same value, those fractions are called equivalent fractions. Let’s take two fractions, 1/3 and 2/6. At first glance, you will say that these two fractions aren’t equal.
But look and think deeply. Take 1/3 and multiply both the numerator and the denominator by 2. This means you have to do 1×2/3×2. What do you get? It is 2/6. Here, we have multiplied both the numerator and the denominator by a common factor, and both the fractions 1/3 and 2/6 represent the same value.
Equivalent Fractions Matching Puzzle
Let’s start with a simple and easy matching puzzle game.
- There are two columns in the following worksheets.
- The first column has some fractions in it and the second column represents the images of those fraction’s equivalent fractions.
- The images in the second column are not in the correct order. Draw a line from the first column to match the correct picture from the second column.
Equivalent Fractions Cut and Paste Game
Another simple equivalent fractions puzzle game. This time we will do a cut-and-paste activity.
- Some pairs of equivalent fractions are given in the following worksheet.
- But the pairs are not complete. Each of the pairs has one or more blank spaces.
- You can see some numbers at the end of each page. Cut those numbers and paste them inside the correct gap to make the right pair of equivalent fractions.
Equivalent Fractions Matching Game
It’s time for another equivalent fraction matching game. You will see some puzzle pieces in the following worksheets. But all the puzzles are not complete. Some puzzles have missing pieces. Find those missing pieces from the below-given list and join them with the correct puzzle pieces.
Equivalent Fractions Board Puzzle Game
Time for an equivalent fraction board puzzle game. Print the following pdf and take a bottle cap and a die.
Place the bottle cap at the start point and roll the die. Look at the number you got from the die and go to that number of blocks from the starting point. You will find several equivalent fraction puzzles in each block.
Solve them, or you will have to stand still in the same place. After solving the puzzle, roll the die again and go to the next block to solve the next puzzle. Continue to do this until you reach the finish line.
Equivalent Fractions True and False Puzzle Game
Some statements related to equivalent fractions are given in the following worksheet.
The statements can be either true or false. Write “true” or “false” beside each statement after justifying it.
Depending on the statements, you will get the next clue to justify the following statements. Continue until you have gone through all the statements to find out whether they are true or false.
Equivalent Fractions Tarsia Puzzle
Have you heard the name of the Tarsia puzzle game?
Some fractions are given in triangles in a Tarsia puzzle. Find the equivalent fractions for each of the fractions and start to join the triangle in such a way that each side of every triangle will reflect its equivalent fractions. For example, if the base of the first triangle is 1/2 then the connecting side of the second triangle with the first triangle’s base will have the equivalent fraction of 1/2.
In this way, form the whole Tarsia pyramid by connecting the triangles with their right sides.
Equivalent Fraction Snowman Puzzle
In this puzzle segment, you will have to complete snowmen. A fraction is given above each of the snowmen in the following worksheet.
Find two equivalent fractions for each of the given fractions and write them on the snowmen’s lower body parts.
Gumball Equivalent Fractions Puzzle
I have a gumball machine at home. I made some gumballs with fractions written on them.
But all the gumballs have fractions written on them. In order to bring out those gumballs, you have to write their respective equivalent fractions in the designated slots. Write an equivalent for each of the gumballs, and then taste and enjoy.
Equivalent Fraction Solving Riddle
Let’s solve the riddle of the equivalent fraction. You have to make a complete sentence from the clues after finding equivalent fractions for each of the given fractions.
Each of the equivalent fractions will give you an alphabet as a clue. Rearrange these alphabets after finding all the equivalent fractions and finding the desired sentence.
Equivalent Fraction Complete Flower Petals Puzzle
Some flowers are given in the following worksheets.
Each of the flowers has a fraction written in its center. Your job is to complete each petal by writing fractions equivalent to the fraction given in the center.
For example, if a flower has 1/3 written in its center, then you have to fill in all the petals by writing fractions that are equivalent to 1/3.
