Fixing Fractions

























We are actually becoming pros at fractions... however, this is another practice (for the boys :) with a bit of a construction theme). Today we introduced the game and it was Mrs. Evans vs. the class. We used one game board under the projector and they used the construction cones to determine their answers. It was a hoot... ManY times, I landed on the exact same question... thus, I was not able to progress. They thought it was real funny... UNTIL payback came for them. I read the questions aloud and then pulled sticks (kid's names) for the answer...(that way EVERYONE HAD to be on board.) We were both down to 1 answer... we flipped back and forth a couple of times because the right answer was already covered... FINALLY, Mrs. Evans landed on the question that I needed and immediately before I even manipulated my blocks (under the projector) they were groaning because they knew it was the answer that I needed to win the game.






















I had to promise them that this game would be added to our math games for fast finishers.




Fun times + Learning times = fun day at school :)

That's very impressive math fraction activity and students will learn quickly from that activity. Thanks for sharing the detail of this activity.
