These adorable lemon fraction clip cards are a fun way to introduce fractions to kids between 2nd and 4th grades. Even my fifth grader loved completing the fraction clip card puzzles. It was a fun way to bring math activities for kids to life!
We love lemons at our house. Anything with that bright, citrus-y scent is amazing! This time, we decided to bring the fun of lemons to a not-so-fun subject: fractions!
If you want to brighten up fraction learning time in your own classroom, then you’ll want to pick up a set of our free lemonade-themed clip cards.
Lemonade and Lemon Fraction Clip Cards for Elementary Kids
We included a mix of lemonade and lemon fruit just because it was more fun! We used this fraction activity in a unit study about lemons and lemonade and it was pretty fun just to use the bright and cheery cards.
These lemon fraction clip cards are a fun way to practice identifying fractions with elementary-aged kids. Why let preschoolers have all the clip card fun?
What Are Clip Cards?
A clip card is a type of math manipulative that helps children learn in a hands-on way. The card has a math fraction problem on it, and below the problem, are three possible answers.
Students can take a clothespin and “clip” it onto the correct answer when they think they have it!
It’s a lot of fun, and definitely more interesting that just writing fractions on a piece of paper.

How to Download and Use the Lemon Fraction Printables
Follow these steps to make durable printable cards that will last for months, if not years!
First, download and print the lemon fraction clip cards onto cardstock paper. Cut out the cards.
If you like, you can laminate the cards. This will make them more durable, but at the elementary age, leaving them just paper shouldn’t be a problem.
Discuss how fractions work with the kids before giving them the cards. Our cards are a bit tricky because we mix lemonade cups with lemons, so kids have to think just a bit more to get the right answer!
All the fractions in this card set are build around quarters and eighths. The cards are designed at about a third grade level.
Let the kids clip the clothespin onto the correct answer below the picture.
The lemons and lemonade makes fractions so much fun!
