Your students will love this adapted math version of Mexican-Train/Chicken Foot Dominoes. Dominoes, Rules, and "Train Station" are all provided. Everything is ready to use; simply print on card stock, laminate and cut out! Students will be engaged in this fun game while identifying common fraction-decimal-percent conversions! It's a great game to have on hand throughout the year or during tutoring to have students practice those common fraction-decimal-percents that are used in most math problems.
Fractions included: 1/20, 1/8, 1/5, 1/4, 1/3, 3/8, 2/5, 1/2, 3/5, 2/3, 3/4, 4/5 (along with their equivalent decimal and percent)
**** 144 dominoes included ****
Object of the Game:
Be the first to play all of your dominoes, or at least as many high-point dominoes as possible, in each round. The lowest total score at the end of all rounds wins the game.
Place dominoes face down and have players draw according to the table. The “Train Station” is placed in the middle of the group and will be used by all players to start their own trains. Players look at their dominoes — hidden from view by the other players — to find the highest value double domino in their hand. This is placed in the middle of the Train Station and is the starting number for all players to form their own personal trains.
Players take turns trying to match the fraction-decimal-percent on the end of their personal train with a domino in their hand.
Tokens are placed on personal trains when a player cannot play which allows other players to play on those trains.
***Scoring can be done many different ways, but a great way to add to the difficulty level is to have players add up all of the values on their remaining dominoes (once a player has played their last domino) and place this as their score for that round. Play as many rounds as you have time for!! *****
