A set of 3 differentiated Four in a Row Game Boards to consolidate finding fractions of amounts / fractions of quantities. An ideal addition to math centers, it's a fun warm-up activity or an engaging early finisher task. Answer keys are included.
Print and laminate the boards for regular use. I recommend printing boards as 11x17 / A3 if possible (or enlarging them on the copier) but smaller will be okay too. There are 3 boards, one for each level of challenge, indicated with a star system, with one star being the least challenging. The one star version includes only unit fractions of small numbers. The two star version includes fractions of larger two-digit numbers, while the three star version progresses to fractions of three and four-digit numbers.
Students work strategically as pairs against pairs or one against one to get four correct answers in a row - horizontally, vertically or diagonally. They roll a die each time to decide from which column to pick a calculation (the columns are numbered 1-6). If there are no calculations left in the column whose number they have rolled, they either skip a go or roll again (depending on the rules you choose). Student write their answers on the board with a whiteboard marker. They can either use a different colored marker to record answers on the board or add an initial or symbol if using the same color as their opponent. Answer keys can also be printed for student checking.
I hope your students enjoy using these.
As I grow my TpT store over the next few weeks I will be posting many more Math resources, including more of my popular Four in a Row Games, and also Hidden Word Puzzles for a range of concepts. Please consider following me to keep up-to-date with new resources. Thank you.
