This is a fun way to practice finding equivalent fractions. This game is played like the card Game SLAP JACK
This is a fun way for students to practice identifying equivalent Fractions. I can not put into words how much my students LOVED this game. Lets just say they loved it so much I am creating two more for other fractions TEKS.
This game is played like Slap Jack. If you don't know how to play that game don't worry I have directions included. Students will have to quickly identify if someone laid down a fraction to the one equivalent on the game broad. This game even sparks some create math conversations between my students.

Slap Equivalent Fraction
How to Win:
The goal is to win all the cards, by being the first to slap each unit fraction as it is played in the center.
Passing out the Cards:
Pass out the cards one at a time face down, to each player until all the cards have been passed out. The hands do not have to come out even. Without looking at any of the cards, each player puts their cards into a neat pile in front of them face down.
How to Play:
Put one game boar in the center of the table. Beginning on the dealer’s left, each player lifts one card at a time from their pile and places it face up on the game board in the PLACE YOUR CARD HERE slot.
When the card played on the board is equivalent to the fraction on the board, the fun begins! The first player to slap their hand down on the equivalent fraction takes it, as well as all the cards under it. The player winning these cards turns them face down and places them under their pile of cards, and shuffles them to form a new, larger pile.
When more than one player slaps at a equivalent fraction, the one whose hand is directly on top of the equivalent faction wins the pile. If a player slaps at any card in the center that is not an equivalent fraction, they must give one card, face down to the player that laid that card down. When a player has no more cards left, they remain in the game until the next equivalent fraction is played, The player may slap at the equivalent fraction in an effort to get a new pile. If the player fails to win that next pile, they are out of the game.
