Fractions, Decimals, and Percents... a teachers favorite topic in fourth and fifth grade.
3 ACTIVITIES TO TEST YOUR STUDENTS KNOWLEDGE:
1. One activity is for students to work in small groups to convert all sorts of numbers less then one but greater than zero into one form and then glue onto a number line to display their understanding of the values of the numbers and which numbers hold more value. I may even ask students to justify why one number may hold more value than another.
2. The second activity has the students determining who in the classroom ate the most of their granola bar for snack time. Students will need to represent the part eaten and part left over on granola bar itself. Then write an equation to show how they would find how much of the granola bar is left over.
3. The third activity has students determining who has the greatest percentage of their milk left over and needing to represent that part on the glass itself to determine who ended up eating the most number of cookies for snack time based off the data they collected.
I included blank pages in here so teachers can write in their own numbers so they can fit the lesson to their students needs.
I also included a learning scale for these three lessons, something my school district is expecting students to reflect on with every lesson and activity they do.
