In this activity, students will practice adding and subtracting fractions as they search to find the missing pieces of a long-lost treasure chest. Teams choose a question (out of 30) and then receive an item from the treasure chest if they answer the question correctly. The game includes two versions of play (first team to collect one of each item wins, or the team to collect the most points wins), and the product includes tangible items to hand out during the game. See the preview for more information regarding play versions and details.
Skills include adding/subtracting fractions with like denominators, adding/subtracting fractions with unlike denominators, adding/subtracting mixed numbers, and adding/subtracting mixed numbers from a whole number. The PowerPoint is able to be edited, however, if you prefer to change up the questions.
Students will enjoy playing this game as they practice their important fraction skills! It's a win-win situation for you and your students!
