One Ruler Race record sheet for each student
One spinner board per pair plus a paper clip
Ruler Race is a game for 2 players. The object of the game is to be the first person to reach the end of the fraction ruler. Players start at 0 and alternate turns spinning the spinner and marking their place on their ruler. Play continues until one person reaches the end of the ruler and wins the game. As students spin for fractions, they need to record them beneath the ruler in a number sentence. Have the students add their first 2 fractions and then keep a running total to use for the next sum.
When game is done, or even to begin, have students race backwards to zero by using and showing subtraction
