Kindergarten Detective Day

When many people think of classroom transformations, they think:

“This would take me hours to set up.”

“This is going to cost so much money.”

“This looks so overwhelming.”

“I could never do this!”

What if I told you classroom transformations could be EASY to set up, FUN to implement, and STRESS-FREE?

A room transformation changes your room into a certain setting or theme to engage students in their own learning with rigorous content.

Classroom transformations are possible in EVERY classroom. You don’t have to spend hours of your time setting up a room transformation or spend lots of money to make it SO MUCH FUN!

SKILLS INCLUDED:

• All Challenges are Error Analysis!
• Equivalent Fractions (4.NF.1)
• Comparing Fractions (4.NF.2)
• Add and Subtract Fractions (4.NF.3)
• Fraction Word Problems (4.NF.3)
• Multiply Fractions by Whole Numbers (4.NF.4)
• Add and Subtract Mixed Numbers (4.NF.3)
• Convert Improper Fractions to Mixed Numbers (4.NF.3)
• Fractions with Denominators of 10/100 (4.NF.5)
• Write Fractions as Decimals (4.NF.6)
• Compare Decimals to Hundredths Place (4.NF.7)

Students find equivalent fractions, compare fractions, add and subtract fractions, mixed numbers, improper fractions, convert fractions, multiply fractions by whole numbers, find equivalent fraction denominators of 10/100, turn fractions into decimals, and compare decimals. This detectives classroom transformation is a great fraction review for 4th graders.

HOW TO USE:

Step 1: Tell your fourth-grade class that they are detectives looking for suspects today and will practice all fraction standards. Students solve math challenges set up around the room. They can be completed in any order and you can choose how many challenges students complete or what time frame they have to meet YOUR needs. It aligns with 4.NF.1-4.NF.7.

Set-up is quick and easy. Simply print the 10 posters, the math worksheets, and a recording sheet for each student. Place them around your room and you’re ready to begin! Additional door décor, printable hats, name tags, admission tickets, a banner, and more are included if you want to use them!

Step 2: Let 4th grade students move around the room and solve each challenge. Each time students solve a math challenge, they go to the teacher to get it checked. Students can work independently, in partners, or in groups. Your choice. Each time they get checked, they get a clue towards solving the mystery and it helps them determine which suspect is not the culprit.

Step 3: When grade 4 students finish all ten challenges (or however many you assign), they win! You can give them the certificate of completion included and the coloring page. I also reward my students with a cool eraser at the end.

Step 4 (OPTIONAL Fast Finisher Activity): Most of the time, there are early finishers. These kiddos get to go around the room and learn fun facts about the theme of the day! No one is ever bored. Choose from 3 different fun fact versions.

• Digital Scavenger Hunt: Let students "find" the facts on Google Slides
• Printable Fact Posters: Hang fact posters around the room for students to find
• QR Codes: Students scan facts on an iPad or similar device to read fun facts

ALL QUESTIONS ARE 100% EDITABLE

The PRINT version of the challenges is fully customizable! There are 3 versions included.

2. 100% Editable Version: The challenges are pre-made for you but you can edit any text on the page! Change the title, the instructions, or the questions so they work best for your classroom.
3. Blank / Create Your Own Content Version: Each challenge is blank and fully customizable. You can type anything you'd like on each page.

### Standards

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Explain why a fraction ð¢/ð£ is equivalent to a fraction (ð¯ Ã ð¢)/(ð¯ Ã ð£) by using visual fraction models, with attention to how the number and size of the parts differ even though the two fractions themselves are the same size. Use this principle to recognize and generate equivalent fractions.
Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators, e.g., by creating common denominators or numerators, or by comparing to a benchmark fraction such as 1/2. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
Understand a fraction ð¢/ð£ with ð¢ > 1 as a sum of fractions 1/ð£.
Understand addition and subtraction of fractions as joining and separating parts referring to the same whole.
Decompose a fraction into a sum of fractions with the same denominator in more than one way, recording each decomposition by an equation. Justify decompositions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model. Examples: 3/8 = 1/8 + 1/8 + 1/8; 3/8 = 1/8 + 2/8; 2 1/8 = 1 + 1 + 1/8 = 8/8 + 8/8 + 1/8.
