This product was specifically designed to help students strengthen and solidify their understanding of fractions of a whole and equivalent fractions. It includes 3 card sets: word form, picture form, number form, that can be used interchangeably between the 2 games. I designed the picture models to be all the same shape and overall size so that the students can better make the connection between equivalent fractions.
Tic Frac Toe requires partners to take turns drawing fractions from a pile and marking an "X" or "O" with their dry erase marker on the ones they find on the laminated game board . If the fraction is not found, but a player finds an equivalent fraction, they can mark the spot. Wins are tallied on a record sheet provided.
Go Fish for Fractions is played much like the traditional game except with 2 different forms of fraction cards; ex word form and number form. Each player begins with 4 cards and the remaining cards go in "the pool" in the middle. Players take turns asking another player if they have a certain fraction in their hand so they can make a pair. If they can indeed make a pair, they get another turn. If not they are told to go fish. They pull a card from the pool and wait until their next turn. The game is over when one player runs out of cards or the pool is gone. Players count up their pairs (1 point a pair), and subtract any cards left in their hand on the provided record sheet.
