Fraction games are a fun way to review important concepts! This differentiated fraction board game includes 32 fraction word problems based on the Common Core standards. 16 fraction word problems are designed for the average student (or teacher-led remedial group), and 16 are designed to enrich the high-flyers with multi-step problems requiring higher level thinking. All 32 problems require students to add or subtract fractions and mixed numbers with unlike denominators. Many answers must be simplified. The questions are based on 5th grade common core standards, but can also be used in other grade levels. An answer key is included for both sets of word problems.
The two board game pages are meant to be glued on a large 12" x 18" sheet of construction paper or manila file folder. I recommend laminating the board and copying the word problems on card stock for long lasting use. I like to put together baggies for each group of students, containing the word problems (cut up) and an answer key.
Group members solve word problems, check their own answers, and roll dice to determine how many spaces to move on the board. Watch out for the "Trade Places," "Go Back 3," and "Go Back to Start" spaces!
Directions and answer keys are included.
