Indoor Basketball Grades Various
Summary: A fun game that will allow students to practice their fraction and percent skills.
This is a variation of an indoor game of basketball. Using a Nerf ball or a wadded up piece of paper, students line up in 4 or 5 teams (about 5 to a team). Each team is given 10 shots and they rotate through shooting and saying the fraction out of 10 and then the percentage. (Example: 1 out of 1 is 100%, 2 out of 2 is 100%, miss one and then it is 2 out of 3 and they convert to 66%.) It is a great way to practice fractions and percentages, the team helps each other keep accurate % and the kids who are good shooters mix with those that are good mathematicians for an excellent warm up or wrap up activity.
