King's Blessing is a game that requires a complex understanding of equivalent fractions. Players roll dice and form a proper fraction from the roll. With this fraction (which represents a fraction of a day's work), players choose which tasks to work on for the day, all the while trying to finish the task before the other player. The player who completes four tasks first, wins the game and receives the King's blessing.
I firmly believe that playing this game will allow any student to understand the complex thinking around equivalent fractions. With this download, you receive the instruction sheet as well as the full game board. You may wish to laminate the board and play with dry erase markers, or you may not laminate it and play with colored pencils.
NOTE: This game requires students to create fractions based off of random numbers. One way to play this game is to use dice (not included in this download). Since this game hits the 4th grade standard of fraction denominators of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, and 12, a custom dice is necessary to play (as well as a "normal" six-sided die, also not included). Amazon sells blank dice with stickers for pretty cheap. I think the investment is well worth it.
Or, if you don't want to do that, download my free nets of dice for this game. Just don't let kids put them in their backpacks as they are awfully flimsy.
Or, if you don't want to do that, download my free spinners for this game. All you have to do then is find a spinner and one of those brass tack-things.
