PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Students love Fractions Basketball! They grab a partner, crumple a piece of paper, and make a hoop with their arms! Bam! You have a fun in door basketball game!

Students take turns between shooting baskets and being the basketball hoop. They record the amount of shots they made and the amount of shots they missed in fraction form. Then they compare the results of the different rounds! What a great way to get kiddos pumped up and excited about using fractions in a real world way!

I have included two different recording sheets for comparing fractions. One requires students to use a tape or strip diagram and the other page requires students to create a number line.

Included:
Game directions and pictures
Recording Sheet
Comparing Fractions Recording sheet with fraction strips (tape diagrams)
Comparing Fractions Recording sheet with number lines

Helpful Hint: I call fraction bars the “KitKat Model” because it looks like a Kit Kat Bar. It is easy for students to compare fractions with bars directly over one another.

Variations:
Have students compare their “scores” with their partner.
Play outside using a real basketball hoop!
