In March Ms. Flanagan’s fifth grade students at Queen of Apostles worked on comparing fractions to decimals using a color by number activity.

  •  First, students needed to change fractions into decimals.
  • The fifth graders used their whiteboards to do the computations of converting fractions to decimals.


  • Then they needed to compare the decimal to the key. Each color was connected to a range of decimal values. Students had to evaluate their decimal to those values to find the correct color.directions for color by the number
  • Lastly, they appropriately colored the sections of the drawing.
