Learn about percents, decimals, and fractions with a fun and easy math learning center activity featured in our April blog post. Students will divide circles into segments, color the pieces, and swap with a partner to practice percents, decimals, and fractions. Read on to find out more.

Well-Rounded Fractions, Decimals, and Percents

In this activity, students will identify fractions, decimals, and percents using circles. Here’s what you will need:

printable circle template

ruler or straightedge

crayons or markers

scissors

Find a free printable circle template online and print one for every student in your class.

Students will use a ruler or straightedge to divide the circle into however many segments they wish. You may want to provide examples, such as halves, thirds, or fourths, one half and two fourths, and so on.

Students will use crayons or markers to shade each segment of the circle with different colors.

Finally, students will cut out the circle with a pair of scissors.

Once students have completed their circles, they can swap with a partner.

Partners will take turns asking each other questions about the circle they made:

“What part of the circle is pink? Answer with a fraction.”

“What part of the circle is green? Answer with a decimal.”

“What part of the circle is yellow? Answer with a percent.”
