### Fractions-Decimals Activity FREEBIE!

Happy Saturday, y'all!  I would've posted this last night, but I had a Spring carnival at school and car trouble.  We also just wrapped up the CRCT yesterday.  So needless to say, the weekend couldn't come soon enough!

I'm taking classes to get my Math endorsement and had to videotape myself teaching a lesson I created.  Lord knows I'm not showing the video, but I'll gladly share the lesson with you!  :)

The lesson objective is to help the students understand the relationship between fractions and decimals.  We made several other connections throughout the lesson as well, such as fractions can represent money amounts.  (Ex.  2/10 of \$1.00 = \$0.20)

The lesson includes:
- cover sheet with essential question
- warm up activity idea/screenshots
- whole group activity (ordering fractions/converting to decimals)
- independent activity (matching decimals to fractions/ordering fractions and decimals)

Here are a couple pictures of the independent activity after we had gone over it.
I drew pictures on the board to give the students a visual of the fractions/decimals.
Students came up and pointed to where they placed each fraction/decimal.  Depending on which form (fraction/decimal) was given in the box, we wrote the other form on the number line as well.

2. I'm sure your lesson was incredible. Thanks for sharing. This looks great for next year. :)

3. Thanks for sharing! We are doing the fraction/decimal (and percent) thing too...although for 5th grade. Seems like they never seem to grasp the concept fully. So tricky! But with your activity, your kids will have a great foundation :)
