FRACTIONS TUG OF WAR CARD GAME

Fraction War Card game


Fractions Tug of War Card Game


This is a fraction card card game that really helps students to use equivalent fractions and compare fractions to get the larger value. The players draw their cards, read the fractions aloud and face off for 'Fraction War'. If two players draw equivalent fractions they draw again to find a fraction of greater value in order to win. For 3rd - 6th Graders.



These game cards can also be use as a center activity wherein students match cards according to their value. So the fraction word, fraction numeral and fraction model for each value (and values equivalent to it) can be grouped. Just remove the wild cards. 

They can also be used to play the Fraction memory Card Game. Using any-two of the categories e.g. fraction numeral and fraction model only, place each card face down randomly in an array. Students discover which cards match which by turning them over. You can only turn over two cards at a time. Whenever you turnover a pair of matching cards, remove them from the group and continue until all pairs have been matched.

It is available for purchase and instant download at TPT and Teachers Notebook.

Hello Nyla
Glad to see trini teachers embracing the web and technology. I am as well a product of Valsayn Teachers' College from many years ago. I now reside and teach in primary school in Sweden for the last thirteen years a so. I teach social sciences to upper grade, here it's from 13 to 15 year old students. Right now my two daughters or pulling and tugging my iPad. Nice to make contact.

About Me

My Photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
