This artistic math project helps students to work with short fraction word problems. They must solve a few fraction multiplication word problems in order to learn the size of their fish tank and the number of each type of colorful fish in their tank. After they have solved the problems, they can actually create the tank using whatever art supplies are found around the classroom. This project provides practice in multiplying fractions, changing mixed numbers into improper fractions, measuring, and word problem decoding skills. You'll be pleasantly surprised with the creative and colorful tanks your students will create!
