Great Winter Activity - student review percents and they decorate your class for winter and holidays.
The students will be divided into groups of four, preferably a proficient, two partially-proficient, and a minimally proficient. Each student will receive a sheet of paper containing four winter designs (percentage problems to solve). I printed on white copy paper the snowmen for minimally proficient students (2 sheets), on yellow copy paper the stars for the partially proficient student (1 sheet), and on light blue copy paper the snowflakes for the proficient student (1 sheet). Each teammate will solve 4 problems, show the work on the winter design, cut it, make a hole with a hole puncher, and attach a wide-opened paperclip to it. The student will then hang it on a suspended piece of yarn, just like the image shows. The students are encouraged to coach their teammates, if necessary. The goal is to attach all winter designs on the Winter chain.
