Fraction Race Board Game - a fun fraction math games

Printable Fraction Game

The goal of this game is to write fractions in their lowest form. By reducing fractions, kids work on recognizing factors and finding the greatest common factor.

In addition, by seeing fractions over and over that reduce to the same fraction, your kids will begin to recognize equivalent fractions.

While I do not recommend that they memorize all of the fractions included in this game, being able to recognize common equivalent fractions easily is helpful. Many of these will become recognizable simply by playing this game together.

This will also help your kids work on their division skills as they divide to simplify fractions.

Simplify Fractions

Complete instructions for how to play are included in the download, but the basic idea of the game is simple, and similar to Candyland.

  • The youngest player starts by choosing a fraction card.
  • They reduce the fraction to its lowest form (all fractions reduce to either 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 1/5 or 1/6).
  • Then, they move forward to the closest fraction on the fraction board matching their solution.

For example, if their fraction reduces to 1/2, they move their game piece to the next 1/2 on the board.

  • Play then moves to the next player, who chooses a card and plays the same way.

Equivalent Fractions

If a player chooses a card that says, “Uh oh, flat tire,” or “Time for a pit stop,” the player loses a turn and play continues to the next player.

The first player to make it to the finish (which requires a solution of 1/6) wins the game!

I hope this fun fraction race game provides an engaging way to practice important math skills, and increases your kids confidence with fractions.
