Use pattern blocks to help students find equivalent fractions. Students simply take the blocks and trade them in for larger and larger blocks until they can not use any larger blocks to make the s…

MissMathDork: middle school math made FUN!: Loved that Lesson: Fractional reasoning on a number line!!!

I would have students create a giant number line (for fractions or integers) and "walk through it" to solve problems together.
