This lesson is Day 2 in a series of 12 lessons around fraction equivalences and comparisons.

This game may be played with one or two people. It reviews fractions on a number line, adding fraction with like denominators, and equivalent fractions. For an extra challenge, you can even break up your moves across multiple tracks (e.g., if your card reads 1/2, you could move 1/4 and 2/8).
