Free Fraction Activity - Frac Smack!
Play Frac Smack with a small group to practice identifying the fractions whole, half, third, and fourth.
Shuffle the fraction cards and deal an even amount to each player. Depending on student level, either play with one fraction shape deck (circle, rectangle, or square) or use all three decks for an added challenge. Choose one of the four category cards (whole, half, third or fourth) to focus game play.
The object of the game is to ‘smack’ a card that shows the fraction that you are focusing on for that round. Players go around clockwise placing a card in the middle pile. Look at the card that has been put down. If it matches the category card (whole, half, third or fourth), smack it! If it doesn’t match, the next player puts down a card. The fastest player to smack the pile when the correct fraction is shown gets to keep all of the cards! Play continues until one player has won all of the fraction cards.
