The Comparing Fractions: Donut Game
has students compare fractions in a math game format. This packet is part of the “Math Games in a Snap” product line. This packet has students work on comparing fractions and identifying which fraction is either the greatest, or the least, depending on how you would like to play this game. The goal of this packet is for students to work with fractions and get comfortable with identifying and comparing fractions to determine which fraction is the greatest and which is the least.
How to Play the Game:
Students shuffle the deck of cards, and split the deck in half. One half goes to one player, the other half goes to the other player. If students are playing with more than two students, they should divide the deck accordingly. Students flip over one card at a time. If students choose to use the spinner, they will need a paper clip and a pencil. Students will flip over their fraction card, spin the spinner and the person with the fraction that matches what was spun will win.
The fractions that students practice with are: halves, thirds, fourths, fifths, sixths, eighths, tenths and twelfths.
How do I set up the game?
To set up the game you will need to print several sets of the comparing fractions game. You can have these cards laminated so they last longer. I place each card set into an Iris container so that students know where the cards are located and can put the cards away when they are finished with the cards.
