# {FREE} Ratios Task Cards Review Game – 6th Grade – Printable

Could you 6th grade students use a fun review of ratios and ratio word problems? This ratios task cards review game will get them up and moving as they put it all together!

What is a ratio? How does it differ from a fraction? Introducing and teaching ratios can be a challenging topic for students to wrap their mind around because it looks like something familiar (fractions) but it’s actually different. Making sense of ratios and proportions takes a lot of exploration & practice and especially looking at problems in context. This set of camping ratio tasks is a good way to have conversations about ratios in real life and how we can use ratios & proportions to solve problems.

Once you’ve completed your chapter or unit on ratios, this ratios task cards review game is a great way to put all their knowledge together and review lots of ratio skills at once.

This free task card activity includes 24 ratios & unit rate task cards. But there’s a twist that makes this more fun than your average task cards set!

## Ratios Task Cards Review Game: Skills Covered

Here’s a quick list of ratios related skills students will practice with this task card set.

• Writing ratios
• Equivalent ratios
• Ratios & unit rate word problems

## Prep Required for the Ratios Task Cards

To get this ready for your students, start by printing the 24 task cards (4 per page) on card stock paper and print the student recording page (2 per page).

If possible, laminate the task cards for durability.

Cut out all the cards and cut the student answer pages in half.

Then hang the task cards around the room, scatter them on different tables or lay them out on the floor. The key is to put them various places so students are up and moving as they solve the problems!

And that’s it! Now your students are ready for the ratios and unit rate review game.

## How to Play the Task Cards Breakout Game

This game is like a combination of a scavenger hunt and an escape room.

The goal is to be the first student who determines the 4-digit code by completing all the task card problems.

To begin, students determine the answer to one of the task card problems.

Each problem includes 4 gems, representing multiple choice answers. When they know the answer, they color in that gem (and record the question number) on their answer sheet.

Once they complete all 24 problems, they add up the total number of each type of gem to reveal the 4-digit code.

The first student to determine the 4-digit code wins!

## Tips for Teachers

When students finish, have them come to you to show you their final 4-digit code.

If they are correct, you can reward them (if you want) and they can move onto something else, or they can help other students who are still working.

If the student’s 4-digit code is not correct, tell them “NO,” but do not tell them which questions they got wrong. Send them back out to try again! It’s likely they know which questions they were unsure about.

When everyone is done or you have a few “winners,” go over the correct answers so students can check their work. I prefer to have students grab a card or stand next to a card, read the question out loud to the class and tell the class their answer choice. As a class we decide if that person’s answer is right or wrong.

If time is short, display the answer key on the board. How you review the answers is up to you.

Recording the question number: Because students can answer the problems in any order, it is EXTREMELY important that they write the question number on their answer sheet.

This way they know if they already visited and answered a particular question. If they do not record the question number, they may FORGET which questions they have yet to answer. Example: If a student is answering question 6, and the answer image is a diamond, they will shade in the diamond and THEN write #6.

This will also help them go back and make corrections if they don’t have a portion of the 4-digit code correct.
