The zoo! Outer space! Underwater! The baseball field! Fractions are everywhere we look, and this writing activity allows students to be creative as they choose a location and write four fraction sentences about events that could happen there. You will love reading what your students come up with as you assess their understanding of converting fractions to decimals and percents. Then students will graph their fractions and decimals on a number line by drawing a miniature picture at each point to represent the corresponding sentence. Also included is a five-problem skills worksheet, appropriate as a review before the activity or as a follow-up or assessment afterwards. Every minute of a teacher's day is precious, including the five it takes to make an answer key. No worries! A thorough, typed answer key for the worksheet is included with all work shown.
