PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

★ ★ Bowling with Fractions Activity Sheet ★ ★

This activity is a fun, hands-on way to review the concept of fractions, decimals, and percents...while at the same time making fractions relevant to the real world! Includes four versions for differentiation!

About this Activity:
I developed this activity for my 6th grade resource room class for reviewing fractions/decimals/percents conversions. With the four differentiated versions of this activity, this product is also applicable to the elementary classroom for fractions/decimals or simply writing fractions.

In My Classroom:
I implemented this activity with my 6th grade resource room students in both our classroom and our gym as part of a stations activity. Any bowling kit will work…borrow from your school physical education teacher, purchase cheap toy kits online (under 10 dollars on Amazon), or make your own items such as a ball and paper towel rolls. OR...use dice! Students can then "roll" for each bowling turn.

Differentiating in the Classroom:
This activity contains FOUR versions of the worksheet. The first provides guided directions on converting fractions from fraction → decimal → percent. The second provides the space for students to convert from fractions → decimals → percents without including the step-by-step directions. There is also an additional third worksheet that only asks students to convert from a fraction → decimal and a fourth worksheet that simply asks for a fraction.

You can choose to use any of these worksheets for your classroom depending on student learning level or progress into the unit. You can also use both sheets in your classroom to provide student choice (“challenge by choice”) and allow students to pick whether or not to have the guided directions, depending on their confidence with the material. I allow students to use a calculator for this activity.

Includes 4 Differentiated Versions:
♦ 1 page Teacher Guide
♦ 2 pages student worksheet (Version 1: from fraction → decimal → percent)
♦ 2 page student worksheet (Version 2: from fraction → decimal → percent with support)
♦ 2 page student worksheet (Version 3: from fraction → decimal with support)
♦ 2 page student worksheet (Version 4: fraction with support)
