Smartie Challenge

This was a great little activity yesterday that we used to tune in to fractions, decimals and percentages. Each group was given a box of smarties (about 13-15 in each box) and asked to complete this table.

They had a ball (after we talked about ‘self control’ to not eat them!) adding up the colours, working out the fraction, drawing the picture and working out ay possible equivalent fractions. An extention to the activity was to convert the fractions to decimals and percentages – a great little assessment part of the session.

 All thanks to Pinterest and a bit of tweaking!
