As I was tutoring this summer, I was looking for games to help my students recognize equivalent fractions. There wasn't a whole lot out there, so I made these! When I introduce these games, I always have the students name the fractions on the game board first. They each only use 5 or 6 base fractions. We then list the first few fractions. Beginners can use their list while they play, and more advanced students put their list away and rely on mental math or a whiteboard and marker to figure out if the fractions are equivalent.
Included are 4 different board games that work on recognizing and using equivalent fractions. Each board game uses “base” fractions that have a picture card. The games are designed for 2-4 players, but can easily be played alone or with more players. They are also just the right size to be put into file folders! I recommend printing the boards and cards on different colored cardstock for each game and laminating them.
Print 2 copies of the cards. One to cut out, the other to use as a key!
