To help students understand fractions using area and set models.
• Copy the cards in color on white cardstock
• Laminate and cut apart
1. Pass out one card to each student
2. Choose a person to start and end the game. (I don’t use a start/end card, because I like to choose who starts and give everyone a chance to answer and call out a question.)
3. This student will say will state the fraction represented by the area or set model on his card by saying, “I have two halves.”
4. Next, the student will read the bottom of the card, “Who has three-sixths?”
5. The student who has three-sixths represented on his cards says, “I have three-sixths.” and the play continues until it ends back at two-halves (or on whichever card started).
1. Students can use this in a center and connect like dominoes.
