Color AND Black and White version!
This game helps students identify halves, fourths, eighths, sixteenths, and how many parts are needed to make a whole. It can help students recognize how the number of fractional parts affects the size of the part. It also helps develop their understanding of equivalent fractions.
As students play, ask them what fraction they are hoping to roll and ask them why. They will soon start developing the language that helps explain the relationship between the number of parts and the size of the part, which is a difficult concept for many kids.
Laminate the pages and then cut out the pieces. I store the pieces in ziplock bags and place all the baggies into a manila envelope with the directions laminated onto the front. To save on ink, print the black and white version onto colored paper!
** To play, you will need a fractional die. These can be bought online or you can write the fractions on a blank dry erase die. **
