One math concept that can cause so many students to stumble is fractions. Understanding what they represent, using them in calculations, and simplifying can cause such anxiety. But with a little practice simplifying fractions it doesn’t have to be so intimidating. This super cute, colorful Fraction Race math game is a great way for third grade, fourth grade, and 5th grade students to practice. Our fraction board games is an easy, low prep fraction game to work on simplifying fractions.

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.

Complete instructions for how to play are included in the print, 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.

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.

Thank you Beth for the Fraction Race game. I’m a retired teacher helping my niece who had to be pulled out of school for the last two months due to mental health. She is a very good student and I want to reward and make fractions fun for her. Thank you again for offering this to us.

I love the Fraction Race Game and would love to play it with my class. However, I can’t get the game board to print correctly. The right side of the board prints a blue blocky pattern over the track starting at the purple 1/5. I have made many attempts at trying various ways of printing just this one page and each times it turns out the same. Could you help me with this? Thanks!

1. Make sure you download the file first and save on your local drive. Print from the saved local version to avoid any rendering errors due to internet lag/speed =)
