This is a really fun project that I do with my students. You start with the students answering long division problems and with each correct answer, they get to add a piece to their own unique character. I created the character and all of the accessories. My students loved the fact that they were able to be creative and also be rewarded for answering always tough long division problems.
They start with a blank character and can add hair, hats, mustaches and clothes with each correct answer. I did not add any color because this was half the fun with the activity . Who can create the most unique character? Learning can be fun!
