I have to do a lesson in a 6th grade class on adding and subtracting fractions with like denominators and I'm trying to think of some kind of game to play with the students. Let me know if you have any ideas!

cards or dice

have them get in pairs (opponents)
they should flip over one card or roll one die (that's the denominator)
then they should each flip over a card in their own stacks or their own dice--those are the numerators
whoever adds them together to get the simplified/reduced answer first, earns a point.

to subtract, have them determine which fraction is the larger and then subtract the other one from it.
