Fractions don’t need to be boring. Play Dominoes or Train Race (Each partner has a set of 12 cards—one A4 sheet. Shuffle cards and race to make one long train.)
Students will develop skills in recognising fractions and decimals in three formats:
Match diagrams to fractions using tenths and hundredths
Match diagrams to decimals using tenths and hundredths
Match decimals and fractions using tenths, hundredths and thousandths
8 different sets = 96 cards, ready to be printed and laminated.
This game is suited for use in small rotational activity centres.
I have also found it useful to copy several sets so the whole class can work on the same task together.
After students have played it several times over a few sessions and become efficient in matching equivalent fractions, my classes have loved playing Train Race to see who can complete the whole set first.
