• This is a fun winter math activity for your students to practice working with simple fraction/decimal/percent conversions.

• They look at the 10 gingerbread people and determine what percent have different traits. For example if 4 of the 10 gingerbread people have scarves, they write the fraction (4/10), the decimal (0.4) and then turn it into a percent (40%).

• You can project the picture of the 10 gingerbread people on an interactive whiteboard (or while screen-sharing for distance learning) or you can print one per student or group.

• Students each have a table to fill in and questions to answer (These will get them thinking about simple probability as well. For example, if the cookies are all in a bag, am I more likely to pull out one with a scarf or bowie?).

• If you want an extension, two blank pages are included so students can design their own gingerbread people, write questions, and trade with a partner.

This activity is designed for students in grades 3-6 who are learning about fractions, decimals, and percents using tenths.

Standards:

CCSS3.NF.A.3

Explain equivalence of fractions in special cases, and compare fractions by reasoning about their size.

CCSS3.NF.A.3d

Compare two fractions with the same numerator or the same denominator by reasoning about their size. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with the symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.

CCSS6.RP.A.3c

Find a percent of a quantity as a rate per 100 (e.g., 30% of a quantity means 30/100 times the quantity); solve problems involving finding the whole, given a part and the percent.

CCSS4.NF.C.6

Use decimal notation for fractions with denominators 10 or 100. For example, rewrite 0.62 as 62/100; describe a length as 0.62 meters; locate 0.62 on a number line d
