TEKS 7.3ab (Supporting, Readiness)
TEKS 6.4g (Readiness)
Great activity with 100% engagement. I give students 2-3 fun size bags of skittles. We go through the first part together so students understand what they are estimating (students will have their own answers). Then they open the bags and couth the total Skittles and the total of each color. They write fractions that they then change to decimals and percents.
Answers will vary from student to student.
