Fraction Frenzy! Adding and Subtracting Fractions and Mixed Numbers Activity/Station by Miss Middle School Teacher
This is a great station or activity for students practicing adding/subtracting fractions and mixed numbers. All you need are some dice and something to use for playing pieces!
Students play in groups of 2-4. I have them use personal white boards, but they could just as easily complete the problems on notebook paper. They shuffle the deck of Fraction Frenzy Cards and place them face down on a table. Then, they flip one card over. Everyone in the group tries to accurately complete the problem (this is not a race!). Once everyone has finished, they show their answers. They can check answers with each other, or consult a copy of the answer key. All students with correct answers get to roll the dice. Whatever they roll is the number of spaces they move on the game board. Play continues until someone reaches the finish!
This set includes: Student game directions, a set of 30 fraction problems in card format (one black and white copy and one color copy included), an answer key for the fraction cards, and a game board.
