Want a fun, easy way to review the Common Core Math Skills? This is for you! This resource contains 10 ready to use, self-checking math center games for the Number and Operations: Fractions Common Core Standards for 3rd Grade.

All you need is 2 dice and maybe an expo marker! Laminate and cut and let the kids learn and have fun!
I have included a color version of the game and another version of the game without as much color if you do not want to use your color ink. An answer key is included so the students can check their answers. I have also labeled the games with A, B, C, D, E so you can keep track of the different games and organize them.
This can be a 2, 3 or 4 player game! The students can even play this independently. The students roll two dice, add up their number, and then find their roll on the game board. They answer the question, check their answer on the included answer sheet,and initial their square if they get it correct. Super easy and fun! I have included two different directions pages and a blank directions page for you to choose how you want your students to play the game.
The games are:
1. Drawing models to represent fractions.
2. Representing situations as fractions
3. Represent fractions on a number line.
4. Determine the fraction that is plotted on a number line.
5. Drawing to models to determine if two fractions are equivalent.
6. Naming equivalent fractions for a given fraction.
7. Determine the missing number to create equivalent fractions.
8. Writing whole numbers as fractions.
9. Determining if a fraction is whole.
10. Comparing fractions.
Covers these standards:
3.NF.1 Understand a fraction 1/b as the quantity formed by 1 part when a whole is partitioned into b equal parts; understand a fraction a/b as the quantity formed by a parts of size 1/b.
3.NF.2 Understand a fraction as a number on the number line; represent fractions on a number line diagram.
3.NF.2.a Represent a fraction 1/b on a number line diagram by defining the interval from 0 to 1 as the whole and partitioning it into b equal parts. Recognize that each part has size 1/b and that the endpoint of the part based at 0 locates the number 1/b on the number line.
3.NF.2.b Represent a fraction a/b on a number line diagram by marking off a lengths 1/b from 0. Recognize that the resulting interval has size a/b and that its endpoint locates the number a/b on the number line.
3.NF.3 Explain equivalence of fractions in special cases, and compare fractions by reasoning about their size.
3.NF.3.a Understand two fractions as equivalent (equal) if they are the same size, or the same point on a number line.
3.NF.3.b Recognize and generate simple equivalent fractions, (e.g., 1/2 = 2/4, 4/6 = 2/3). Explain why the fractions are equivalent, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
3.NF.3.d Compare two fractions with the same numerator or the same denominator by reasoning about their size. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with the symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
