and reinforce their understanding of fractions. Through this hands-on activity, students will work on filling circles with fraction pieces to make whole circles. The game encourages strategic thinking, problem-solving, and a deepened comprehension of how different fractions come together to form wholes.


Preparation for the Fraction Race Game

Before you start the game, some preparation is required to ensure a smooth and enjoyable experience:

  1. Printing and Laminating:

    • Print pages 3 to 11 for each player participating in the game.

    • Cut out and laminate the fraction pieces to make them durable for repeated use.

    • Print out and laminate the spinner on page 2.

  2. Setting Up:

    • Place all the fraction pieces in a container for easy access during the game.

    • Put the spinner in the middle of the playing area. If you don’t have a spinner, use a pencil and paper clip as a makeshift spinner.


Aim of the Game

The goal of the Fraction Race Game is to be the first player to fill four circles with fraction pieces that combine to make whole circles. This challenge helps students practice combining fractions in a practical and visually engaging manner.


How to Play the Fraction Race Game

  1. Spin for Fractions:

    • Use the pencil and paper clip or the spinner to spin a fraction.

  2. Place Your Fraction:

    • Take a fraction piece from the container that matches the fraction you spun and place it on one of your circles.

  3. Strategize and Rearrange:

    • Each turn, you can rearrange your fraction pieces to work towards completing whole circles. This encourages strategic thinking and an understanding of fraction equivalency.

  4. Winning the Race:

    • The first person to fill in all four circles with fractions that add up to whole circles wins the game.

  5. Avoid Overlaps:

    • Be careful not to overlap any fraction pieces. If they overlap, they do not add up to a whole. Pay special attention to fractions like 1/4 and 1/5, as they can be difficult to distinguish.


Educational Benefits of the Fraction Race Game

  • Hands-On Learning:

    • The game provides a tactile and visual way to understand fractions, making abstract concepts more concrete.

  • Strategic Thinking:

    • Students must think ahead and plan how to combine fractions to form whole circles, enhancing their problem-solving skills.

  • Fraction Recognition:

    • By repeatedly handling fraction pieces and seeing them in action, students improve their ability to recognize and understand different fractions.

  • Collaborative Learning:

    • The game can be played in pairs or small groups, promoting teamwork and communication.
