This s’mores themed equivalent fractions game is designed for practice during a math center.
Camping and S’mores are a favorite fall theme for the classroom. This is why we wanted to bring you a S’mores themed equivalent fractions game that will pair perfectly with a fun classroom snack.
You will find the download of printables for this equivalent fractions game at the bottom of the post in BOLD highlighted text.
For this center, print and laminate the cards. Then print a copy of the game board for each set of partners. Choose the fraction and wording cards you would like students to use and set the rest aside.
This is a two player game and each student will need a colored pencil. Students take turns drawing a card from the pile. As they draw a card, they then color in the given fraction on the game board. If no shape is available to create the fraction, the turn is skipped. The first player to get four in a row is a winner.
There are also other ways for students to play games. One way is to sort the fraction and word cards into columns of equivalent fractions. Another version can be played to show comparisons of fractions. Students draw two cards then place a greater than, equal to or less than symbol in between the fraction to show the relationship between the two.
You will find the equivalent fractions game described above right here:
Want a fun and easy snack to accompany your classroom game time without actually making s’mores? (Although that would be fun too!!) Go find some Hershey’s S’mores pudding at your local grocery to share with your students.
TIP: When the kids are done with their pudding treats, you can rinse and keep the cups to reuse in the classroom. They are the perfect size for sorting student portions of manipulatives.
