In this coloring activity, students must find decimals, percents, and ratios that are equivalent to given fractions in order to correctly color a picture of "Mini Man's Magic Chickens." (All fractions have denominators between 2 and 5.) This coloring page can be used as an engaging in-class activity, as a simple but enjoyable activity to leave with a substitute, or even as a colorful homework or spring break assignment. The illustration is suitable for any time of year but is especially appropriate during the spring and/or Easter season. An answer key is provided so that the teacher can quickly and easily check for understanding while students show their work and color the picture.
This activity was specifically designed for students to practice identifying equivalent fractions, decimals, percents, and ratios (Virginia Math SOLs 6.2a & 6.2c).
