Fraction Games for Kids

Fractions, decimals and percents are such an integral part of our daily lives, it is important that kids have lots of exposure, and practice writing and using them correctly. The great thing about this Fraction Game is that it can be easily adapted for different ages and abilities, and used again and again so that the answers will be different each time.

3rd Grade Fraction Activities

First, print an ocean mat and recording page for each child and one instruction page. Then print and cut out the ocean animal cards.

I would suggest printing the ocean mats and animal cards on card stock and then using a laminator so this can be used over and over. You could, however, use it as a cut and paste activity if you’re only using it once.

Once the materials are ready, it’s time to create an ocean scene full of fun creatures.

Fractions for Kids

To add an animal to your ocean mat simply roll a die and add the corresponding animal to your ocean.

For instance, if you roll a 1, you would add a blue fish.

Each child rolls the die ten times to add ten animals and fill their ocean scene. This fraction game for kids is such a fun visual and way for third grade, fourth grade, fifth grade, and sixth grade students to practice.

Fraction Worksheets

Once the scene is complete, your child can fill in the chart on the free fraction worksheet with the total number of each animal, and write the fraction, decimal and percent of that type of animal compared to the total animals in the sea.

Variations of the Ocean Fractions Activity:

  • If you’d like to use this as an introduction using fractions, decimals and percents out of 100, multiply each animal total by ten before converting to fractions, decimals and percents. That way, the total animal count will be 100.
  • To make this more challenging, increase the number of rolls to a more difficult number such as 15 or 18 (or whatever you’d like). Then have the kids write the number of each animal as a fraction, decimal and percent.
  • You may also want to use this as an opportunity to practice reducing fractions to their simplest form.
