Fraction Activity for First & Second Grade!

April 29, 2019

Fraction activities in first and second grade can be hard to come by. After learning about the difference between parts and whole and going over the “basic” fractions of 1/2 and 1/4, I find that my first graders are ready for a little bit more. That’s when I introduce the fun game, Fraction Wars!


This fraction activity has students rolling, creating, and comparing some basic fractions.

You can see how to play this game and grab the FREE recording sheet below:

If you end up using this fun game, let me know by leaving me a comment or tagging me on instagram (@susanjonesteaching).

  • Hi Susan, I love this idea. Thanks for sharing. I’ve looked and clicked everywhere on this postig and I can’t find the recording sheet. I saw your note that says it’s above the video in the description but there are no links. Please help 🙂
