How to Use Games in Math

Princess Pascucci and the Fraction Fiasco

Introduce the game with a trailer using iMovie. My students LOVED this and it was an incredible hook to make them excited for the game. Click here to watch the trailer –> Ali and the Fraction Fiasco Movie Trailer

I also showed them how I made a digital storyboard to plan out the sequence of events so I was able to link this math lesson with the reading block and with sequencing a story. See that here –> Math Game – Storyboard

Finally, the students played the game! It was a multilevel game that took a few days to complete. Students worked with their team members. It worked out great! Princess Ali and the Fraction Fiasco
