Product Description
I created Fraction Fiesta because my students always need more practice, practice, practice with fractions.

You have a game board, a separate {optional} playing card mat, player game pieces, and lots and lots of playing cards!

I’ve included at total of 160 playing cards!!!

There are 2 pages, 16 cards, each of:
subtracting with like denominators
subtracting with unlike denominators

There are 4 pages, 32 cards, each of:
multiplying fractions
dividing fractions

You also have 4 pages, 32 cards, containing 9 unique “Wild Card” options.

I highly recommend printing game board, player pieces, and playing cards on card stock and laminating for the best, longest-lasting results.

Fraction Fiesta was created for 2 players.

Students should decide who will go first and select a game piece. Players will take turns drawing cards and solving the fraction problems. Each card will tell the students how far to move and in which direction based on whether their answer is correct or incorrect. The first player to reach the taco wins!

There are ‘double your move’ cards,’ lose a turn cards’, and cards that instruct students to ‘move to a certain space.’ You may choose to use these or not.

You may also want to select which playing cards you use based on your students ability and your classroom needs. There are 128 actual playing cards! I tried to leave as much room for differentiation as possible!

When I use this type of a game in my classroom, I have players check each others work to make sure they agree whether it is a correct answer or not. If they cannot reach an agreement, they may ask another student or the teacher.

I also have a Fraction Fiesta Game for Grades 7 & 8.

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you and your students find this game both fun and beneficial.

Enjoy :)
