This fun game reviews adding, subtracting, and decomposing fractions.
This board game is best suited for partners, but can also be played in small groups of 3-4 students. Students will take turns moving their game pieces on the board and adding and subtracting fractions. When students land on a “star” space, they will solve one of the “fraction frenzy” cards.
Use a paper clip and pencil to spin the spinner. Any small items you have handy will work for the game pieces. Note: The cards can also be used as task cards if you prefer - they don’t have to be part of the game.
•Student directions & spinner mat (in color & black & white)

4.NF.3: Understand a fraction a/b with a > 1 as a sum of fractions 1/b.
4.NF.3A: Understand addition and subtraction of fractions as joining and separating parts referring to the same whole.
4.NF.3B: Decompose a fraction into a sum of fractions with the same denominator in more than one way, recording each decomposition by an equation. Justify decompositions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
4.NF.3C: Add and subtract mixed numbers with like denominators, e.g., by replacing each mixed number with an equivalent fraction, and/or by using properties of operations and the relationship between addition and subtraction.
4.NF.3D: Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions referring to the same whole and having like denominators, e.g., by using visual fraction models and equations to represent the problem.
Although this center meets the above Common Core standard, this is NOT a Common Core specific skill! There is NO reference to the Common Core or the standard number on student pages, so this center is a great addition to any classroom!
