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!

Have students compare their “scores” with their partner.
