And my latest freebie is………. a matching game for fractions, decimals, and percents. Soon I will write a post that explains how I teach converting fractions, decimals, and percents. My students seem to find it simple and they somewhat enjoy doing it. They definitely enjoy the activities I use to teach and reinforce the skill.
I had the idea (which I will use this with my students after state testing, since we already reviewed converting decimals, fractions, and percents), to use the fun memory matching game to reinforce this skill. I made three sets of sixteen cards. One set for changing decimals to percents, one for changing decimals to fractions, and one for fractions to percents. I kept it at sixteen cards so that the game could go fairly quick.
Students should be in groups of two. Students keep the cards face down, and shuffle them up. They then put them in four rows of four. The first student flips over two cards. If they are matches, they get to keep the cards. If they are not matches, the cards are flipped back over and placed in the same position. Student 2 then goes and the process is repeated. The game is over after all cards have been matched. The winner is the student with the most matches.
I would recommend making these copies on card stock and laminating them. I hope your students enjoy! Click the picture below for the free download!
