Practise Identifying Fractions with an Undersea Maths Game!

Are you looking for a fractions game that strengthens your students’ understanding of fraction identification? This board game will encourage students to find and identify fractions in multiple formats, including:

  • Fraction Models
  • Fractions on a Number Line

Each player chooses a game piece. One player will roll the number cube to determine how many spaces to move. Once the player lands on a space, they will look to see if they have landed on an image. 

  • A boat in a whirlpool means to lose your next turn, a money bag means to move forward two spaces, and a squid means to move backward one space.  
  • If the space is blank, no action is necessary. 

Once movement is settled, a player must draw a card from the stack. If they answer correctly, they remain in their current position. If the answer is incorrect, the player will choose a second card and try again. The player must return to their previous spot if their second chance answer is wrong.  

The player who gets to the finish line on the board first wins!

Through this activity, students will show they can match and identify fractions using different models.
