Groundhog Day Math
This Groundhog Day math game is used to help students practice comparing two fractions when the numeral form is shown. I use this game a lot during January or February of each year. Students practice comparing two fractions while playing a game at the same time! This game is flexible and students should be able to use whatever method you prefer them to use to solve each problem when playing this game.
It's a 2-4 person game where students try to be the first person to build a groundhog with 2 body parts, a hat or decoration for the groundhog's head, a scarf, and clothes! Each time a student answers a game card question, they get to take a groundhog part from the middle to put on their groundhog. There are also chance cards in the deck that may help a student or put them back a few paces during the game! My students LOVE this game in the winter time each year or after Valentine's Day and enjoy picking out which parts they want on their groundhog!
The best part is--the students have no idea how much they are learning! This game is a great practice or review game to see who understands a concept you are teaching and who is still struggling with the material.
Every It's Groundhog Day! game comes with 48 questions on game cards, 24 chance cards, and an answer key!
