Math Game – Equivalent Fraction Race

Equivalent Fraction Race. You will need

  • Catching objects such as buckets or baskets
  • Small throwing objects such as bean bags or balls.
  • Label the catching objects with lowest denomination fractions such as 1/4, 1/3, 1/2, etc.
  • Label the throwing objects with fractions that are equivalent to the fractions named on the catching objects such as 2/8, 3/9, 5/10, etc.

Place the learner in front of, but a few paces away from, the catching objects. Place the throwing objects next to the learning guide. The guide tosses one throwing object at a time to the learner while calling out the fraction name. The learner catches the throwing object and calls out its fraction name. He or she then calls out an equivalent fraction in the lowest denomination for the throwing object and tosses it into the correct catching object. Play several times. Use a timer and make a graph to measure progress.
