This is a worksheet designed to be used with an individual packet of smarties for each child (or individual coloured lollies/candy).
Students will be familiarised with fractions. Concepts include numerator and denominator, adding fractions, calculating equivalent fractions and multiplying fractions.
Students will be familiarised with decimals. Converting from a fraction to a decimal, adding decimals and converting from decimals to percentages.
Students will be familiarised with percentages. Converting from a decimal to a percentage and recognising that the smarties will add to 100%.
Students will be familiarised with graphing skills. Reintroducing basic graphing skills such as labelling axes and having a scale, key, title (etc.) was my aim for this activity.
This also involves a small amount of cooperative learning between two or more students.
What do you need to do this “hands on” activity?
• Smartie packets
• Students who can partner up and work together
• Pencils for graphing
Suitable and adaptable for most ages!
