Fraction reveal!

A game for 2 players

This game gives practice of comparing fractions

You will need:

  • Fraction strips - gluing these to wide lollipop sticks makes them more durable and easier to handle
  • An envelope large enough to hold 10 sticks
  • How to play

    Place the sticks inside the envelope with just the written fraction showing (as in the image below).

    Players each pick a stick to pull from the envelope, then compare their fractions. The player who has pulled out the larger fraction keeps both sticks. Alternate who goes first each turn.

    The winner is the person with the most sticks when the envelope is empty.
