Looking for ways to integrate math and social studies?
This activity sheet allows students to visit a website full of graphic photographs of the world's flags. On the recording sheet, they will indicate what fraction of the flag is made up of each color. The colors in each flag are already written out after the country's name, so the student just needs to estimate visually and then record the fraction.
Some of them are straightforward, where 3 equal parts are easily shown. Others require that students use benchmark fractions to estimate, as the denominator might be different than the number of colors.
This is a great activity to accompany a social studies unit on geography or various countries, as well as an enrichment activity during a math unit on fractions.
