Fraction Game

More than that, my kids, even my six year old, are finally conceptualizing fractions! So, fun and learning in one game, what’s not to love?

fraction gameTo Play:

Each player starts with a cylinder. To play, draw one card from the card pile. Drop the card’s corresponding fraction fizzy tile into the cylinder. So, if you draw a 1/3 card, you put a 1/3 fizzy tile into your cylinder.

Play continues. The object is to get as close to 1 whole without going over.

Notice the above left cylinder. The green 1/5 fizzy tile has gone over the edge — so that player automatically loses. Points are awarded by who gets closest, second closest and third closest to one whole.

If you think you should stop adding fractions tiles you announce “hold” and stop playing.

The age recommendation is 8 – 11 but JJ is 6 and she did fine.

    Looks like a fun & creative way to learn about fractions. Seems to teach strategy as well which is an equally important skill in math! Love it!

    I am really excited about this game. I think that it will make learning fractions easier to understand and fun at the same time. I am a homeschool mom of three and think this would be a great a learning tool to add to out math workstation.

  11. Joan Stewart says

    Great way to learn about fractions! Actually seeing what is being talked about really concretizes the concept. And makes it fun! Great idea!

  12. Robin says

    It’s so hard to teach fractions without using pizza and cookies. As much as I love pizza and cookies, those get old fast when teaching this math concept. Since this hands-on game includes both manipulatives and number cards it’s a great concept. Definately, a keeper!

  13. Allison Kelly says

    I would love to win this game! I teach 3rd grade and fractions are a big part of the 3rd grade standards! :-)

  14. says

    Thank you for posting! I have a child that wants to learn more math, but doesn’t want to do worksheets in the summer (can’t say I blame her). We can sneak in some learning in our game days!!!
