This is a set of five fall themed math centers for the fifth grade classroom. These are great for engaging your class during the days before Thanksgiving! This set of kid friendly centers is focused on decimal concepts. Please download the free preview above to see the pages from the centers.
Included in this product:
1.) Know that Number - students select a decimal card and complete a worksheet focused on that number (shade in a 100 block, round to the nearest tenth, add a number to their number, write in expanded form and word form). Students can revisit this center several times by choosing new numbers.
2.) Mum and Pumpkin Sale - students read a flier for a mum and pumpkin sale, then read and solve word problems.
3.) Operating with Decimals - students solve addition, subtraction, multiplication and division problems with decimals. Each operation has its own set of cards. Each set has 6 cards. There are 24 cards in all. You can remove cards from the set if you have not yet covered multiplication or division.
4.) Order of Operations Trees - There are three trees with three different whole numbers. Students solve expressions written on leaves and decide where to place the leaf. Students record their solutions on a worksheet. This activity include exponents and parentheses.
5.) Comparing Decimals - Students select a set of four cards and place them in order according to their recording sheet. There are four different sets of decimals included.
All answer keys are included EXCEPT for Know that Number. Due to the nature of the activity, there are many possible solutions depending on the card the student selects. All other centers include task cards, student worksheets and an answer key for the teacher. These cards would look best printed in ink. Some numbers may be difficult to read if printed in grayscale.
