Strengthen your students’ fraction-comparing skills with this game based on a classic. Give each student pair a set of dominoes in which any pieces with blank halves have been removed. To begin, students turn all the dominoes facedown. Each player draws one piece and positions it as shown so that the smaller half represents a numerator and the larger half represents a denominator. The player with the larger fraction takes both pieces. If the fractions are equal, each student turns over another domino and continues to compare until one is greater. Play continues until all dominoes have been used. The student with more pieces wins.
