Fractions can be fun to review when you use Intro to Fractions Game Show! This game is perfect to review/teach the concepts needed prior to beginning an entire unit on fractions. Put students in up to 6 groups to play this Jeopardy style game! Review days can be dull and kids just don't listen. But if you tell them that they will play a FUN review game to test their new knowledge, they will make sure to be listening to your every word.

I play this game a little differently. I like to have all students ENGAGED and REVIEWING every question. So, I do this by having them answer every question. One team chooses the category and amount. EVERYONE answers the questions with their groups and records their answer on their whiteboards. The team, whose turn it is, show me their answer and if correct, I award them the points. If incorrect, any team that has the correct answer can go for the steal and get the points for that question. Then the next team gets to choose the category and points.
If you have any questions before you buy, please feel free to leave me a Q & A and I'll get back to you as soon as possible. ✔ Test to make sure this game works on your computer by downloading the Sample Game Show Test File!

PLEASE NOTE: You WILL NEED to enable macros for the presentation to work correctly. Instructions are included. Most computers ask you right when you open the file so it's super easy. If it doesn't, just follow the instructions in the "Instructions" PDF file included in the download.
MAC USERS: Please do not purchase unless you are ok with adding 3 fonts to your computer. For some reason Mac Powerpoint will not allow the fonts to be embedded. Instructions are included and I do tell you where to grab the fonts.
This is a POWERPOINT file and can be used on any computer with Powerpoint. I have an interactive whiteboard and display it on that with no problems. Students love to come up and click on the categories! This file is NOT editable.
The categories and questions included are as follows:
IDENTIFY: questions consist of shaded pictures that need to be identified in fraction form
COMPARE: questions have 2 fractions that need to be compared
EQUIVALENT FRACTIONS: questions have 3 fractions and students must identify which does not belong
SIMPLIFY: questions have fractions needing simplifying and students must reduce to the lowest terms
MIXED NUMBERS/IMPROPER FRACTIONS: question a mixed number that needs to be changed to an improper fraction and vice versa
