 Kermit's Message: Have boxes drawn onto paper. Have one box for 1/4, 1/2, 1/8 etc. Then, they roll the dice and fill in the box they have rolled. The first person to get a black out wins (whole paper filled in.) If you have little fraction pieces already cut out or made of plastic (pizza slices?) they can roll and draw the corresponding piece. The kids have to make 1 whole with the pieces they drew.

Just type "fractions" or "fraction dice" in the search box at the top of the screen at this site. Otherwise, I have used fraction dice to build a pizza. Make circles. Cut them into different fractional parts (1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/12 or 1/3, 1/6, 1/12), roll the dice, and build a pizza. The person who builds the whole pizza first is the winner. eliza4one 01-20-2008 05:14 PM Can you tell I am beginning a unit on fractions?! When digging through my stuff, I found 2 big bags of fraction dice. Each side labelled a different fraction. No instructions, no games, etc. included. I would like to make use of them as a station/center. Does anyone have a quick (or not so quick) way I could use them? Game ideas? (I am more than willing to make what I need to go with the dice---game board, cards, etc.). Just not sure what game I could create with them. Any ideas greatly welcomed! Thank you, Soph, for the great websites on my other thread!!!
