Math games are great resources to use to give students more practice in learning math concepts, such as comparing fractions. This resource is in the form of the classic game of War. There are 140 game cards in this set, so the one set can be split into several smaller decks to use with 2-4 students in a group. You can also differentiate based on which cards you put in each deck. There are 70 cards with fraction circle models and 70 cards with fractions in standard form. Struggling students would benefit from having a fraction bar flip chart or fraction circle manipulatives.
To assemble, print pages 4-69 double-sided, cut and laminate, if desired. You can print in grey scale if you want to save on printer ink.
To play the game, students shuffle the deck and divide the cards evenly among themselves. The cards are placed face-down. On each play the student flips the card that is on the top of their deck. The student with the larger/largest fraction wins the hand and collects the cards as points. In the case of equal fractions, a second card is placed on top of the cards and the largest fraction is the winner. At the end of the game, students count their cards. The player with the most cards wins the game.
