My class LOVES when I tell them that we are going to play the drawing game! One of my students recently told me that we need to do this all the time because it made him want to learn the concept so he could win the game.
This activity gives students the opportunity to practice 6 skills while racing other teams to draw a Christmas tree. Each round has 4 questions focusing on one skill. Skills iincluded are: percent to decimals, decimals to percent, percent of a number, find the percent given a part and a whole, find the whole given a part and percent, percent of a number with a percent greater than 100%. Play insures that each student is participating on their own, but it also gives the opportunity for collaboration.
