This is a great way to review before a test some of the basic tools and rules of fractions. I call it Fraction Jeopardy, but the kids answer with answers not questions. You can have them work in teams or individually using dry-erase boards or paper to write their answers. I like to have everyone answer on their own and then call on students to share.
I go around the room one at a time and everyone gets a chance to pick a category and value. I put the categories and values on the board, but not the questions. What you are getting here are the questions and answers as well as a file with just the categories and values to project or copy to the board. You could also hand out paper copies to the students and have them cross off the squares as you go.
The points are a distraction to the kids, so you may want to emphasize that they do not matter, or you will lose time while they are calculating scores. Part of my classroom management with this activity is to have the student whose turn it is to choose, make his or her selection and then I read the question aloud. If other students are not listening, then they will not be able to answer. The learn to quiet down and pay attention to the questions.
