This EDITABLE camping room transformation has lots of fraction activities including: divide unit fractions by whole numbers and divide whole numbers by fractions. Print and digital versions are included.

Kindergarten Camping 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:

• dividing unit fractions by whole numbers
• dividing whole numbers by unit fractions
• error analysis with division word problems
• solve word problems including a whole number and a unit fraction
• division problems with remainders
• division problems without remainders
• dividing fractions activity

HOW TO USE:

Step 1: Tell your 5th grade class that they are camping today and will practice comparing lengths. 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 5.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 fifth graders 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.

Step 3: When grade 5 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. You could also celebrate with s'mores.

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.

• 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.
• Blank / Create Your Own Content Version: Each challenge is blank and fully customizable. You can type anything you'd like on each page.

Please note: The digital version and clipart is not editable due to copyright laws.

Can I edit this?

YES! This comes with 3 versions: 1 set of pre-made challenges that are no-prep for you, 1 set of my challenges that are editable in case you want to change a few pages/questions, and 1 set of blank editable challenges if you want to add your own content. This means you could use this room transformation to teach any skill you’d like using the blank editable version!

Will a classroom transformation cost me a lot of money?

NO! Classroom transformations, or themed-days, do not have to cost you a fortune to complete. In fact, you can use ONLY what’s included in this purchase and have a great day with your students! Decor, posters, the academic challenges, and more extras are included so you have more than enough to set the scene. You do not need to spend extra money! There is more than enough for you to transform your classroom without spending any additional money. There is a shopping guide included for teachers who’d like to add additional supplies but that is completely optional.

How long will this take to set up?

It depends! Are you going to use all of the decorations provided or just a few? Are you going to buy additional decorations or just what’s included? You could set this room transformation up in as little as 10 minutes with just a few included posters printed out and put on the walls. There are also teachers who like to spend a few hours decorating their rooms. There’s no wrong answer and I’ve done both! Students LOVE a change from the normal environment and that's what makes a room transformation special--not how many hours you spend setting it up.

Personally, I like to set aside about 30 minutes before the school day starts to set up my room. Whatever I get done in that time period is what my students get to enjoy. This works perfectly for me–do whatever works best for your classroom! The important thing to remember is anything different from a “normal” day is going to be SO much fun for your students and they will love it no matter how much effort you put into decorating.

How long will it take my students to complete the room transformation?

• If you are completing a math room transformation, I would estimate 1-2 hours.
• If you are completing a reading room transformation, I would estimate about 2-3 hours.
• If you are combining a math and reading room transformation together, I would allow several hours for students to complete the room transformation.

***Please note that these time frames will vary depending on: how many students you have, how quickly they work, what grade level you teach, ability levels, working in partners/groups/individually, etc.***

Can I do a room transformation in a shorter amount of time?

These room transformations are made to be flexible! If you only have 30 minutes to an hour to complete the room transformation, you’re able to use this resource! I include 10 challenges in each room transformation for students to complete. You could easily have students complete 5 (or any number you’d like) of the challenges to make it work for your time period. You can also have students work independently or in groups to make things go quicker or slower.

Can students complete less than 10 challenges?

Absolutely! Have students complete however many you think are appropriate for your classroom.

When do you recommend doing a room transformation?

The best time to complete a room transformation is at the end of a unit! When you’ve finished a skill and want to provide a fun, informal assessment of what students have learned, this is the perfect activity to pull out! I also love to do room transformations before holidays and on Friday afternoons as a reward for working hard all week.

How do you check student papers during a room transformation?

Students need to come see you to be checked after each academic challenge they complete. To help ease the number of papers you need to check, I suggest trying one of the following ideas:

• having a few answer keys available for students to check themselves
• have students work in small groups or partners (fewer papers to check and students can assist one another)
• check students after every 2 challenges instead of after every challenge
• invite volunteers in on your room transformation day to help
• put challenges together in a packet for easy checking

### Standards

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Apply and extend previous understandings of division to divide unit fractions by whole numbers and whole numbers by unit fractions.
Interpret division of a unit fraction by a non-zero whole number, and compute such quotients. For example, create a story context for (1/3) ÷ 4, and use a visual fraction model to show the quotient. Use the relationship between multiplication and division to explain that (1/3) ÷ 4 = 1/12 because (1/12) × 4 = 1/3.
Interpret division of a whole number by a unit fraction, and compute such quotients. For example, create a story context for 4 ÷ (1/5), and use a visual fraction model to show the quotient. Use the relationship between multiplication and division to explain that 4 ÷ (1/5) = 20 because 20 × (1/5) = 4.
Solve real world problems involving division of unit fractions by non-zero whole numbers and division of whole numbers by unit fractions, e.g., by using visual fraction models and equations to represent the problem. For example, how much chocolate will each person get if 3 people share 1/2 lb of chocolate equally? How many 1/3-cup servings are in 2 cups of raisins?
