I created this game for common core math stations adding and subtracting fractions. This focuses on matching simple common denominator problems with their solutions. It can be played individually, in partners, or groups of three or four.
It works perfectly in stations as it is easily differentiated. As my students are rotating from one station to the next, I can grab the stack of cards and remove some pairs to modify the game for a lower level group.
There are 36 cards included. This is enough two different 18-card games or three different 12-card games.
I have groups of four rotate through stations. At this station, the groups of four split into two partner pairs. When both partner pairs finish the match, they can trade and do the other half.
For best results, print on card stock and laminate before cutting apart. Student directions are included to use as a partner activity. I recommend laminating them to keep at the station.
Look out for this activity and many others in my eight grade bundles at a deep discount!!! Coming Soon!

Add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators (including mixed numbers) by replacing given fractions with equivalent fractions in such a way as to produce an equivalent sum or difference of fractions with like denominators. For example, 2/3 + 5/4 = 8/12 + 15/12 = 23/12. (In general, a/b + c/d = (ad + bc)/bd.)
