This game is so much fun, students often forget they are learning math while they are playing. Students draw cards and either add or take away pieces of cake. The first to collect 8 whole cakes wins. The Great Cake Race helps students understand addition and subtraction of fractions with the use of manipulatives and the physical act of adding and taking away pieces of cake. They soon learn that sometimes they have to break pieces of cake into smaller pieces, or "regroup," in order to subtract.
