“Three-Bean Salad”: Fraction, Decimal, and Percent Task Cards
This activity provides needed practice in understanding the relationship between fractions, decimals, and percents, which can be so confusing. Students read one of the recipe cards and decide how many of each type of bean are in that salad, based on the listed ingredients, which are given in fractions, decimals, and percent. (I recommend that you actually get bags of dried beans to use as manipulatives.) Students will have so much fun solving the puzzle-type recipes; they won’t even realize how much math they are doing!
This deliciously fun activity can be done as a math center, partner activity, or whole-class “Scoot” type activity.
You will receive:
• 32 recipe cards, which increase in difficulty as the numbers get higher
• Blank recipe cards for students to use to write their own recipes
• 5 different designs of “plates” to use to create their Three-Bean Salad
• Recording sheets
• Answer Key
• Fraction, Decimal, and Percent Conversion Chart in two sizes
