An alternative way of looking at Equivalent Fractions is by the use of a Fraction Wall.

A Fraction Wall enables children to visualise how different fractions relate
to one another and Equivalent Fractions can be easily identified.

This excellent functional Online Number Wall is available from 'Maths is Fun', it demonstrates equivalent fractions down to sixteenths and is well worth a look.

A very useful exercise is to ask your child to create their own fraction wall - include fifths, sixths, tenths, twelfths etc.
