Comparing Fractions

For the past few days, in math class, students have been working on comparing fractions. The students have come up with a list of several different ways to compare fractions. Today we played a game called Capture Fractions. The goal of the game is to compare the fractions. The player with the larger fraction "captures" both fractions.

This anchor chart shows several ways that we know in order to compare fractions.

Which of these fractions is bigger?
