Shamrock Percentages, Decimals, and Fractions
This one is so fun and easy! All you need is a lot of paper shamrocks (or a worksheet that has a lot of shamrocks on it). Then on each leaf, you write either a fraction, decimal, or percentage. You can spread the shamrocks around your classroom or you can have students stay at their desks and pass the shamrocks around. Students will need a recording sheet so that when they get a shamrock they can solve to find the missing fraction, percentage, or decimal.
You could also make this St. Patrick’s Day math activity into a little craft and have students write their answers on the other 2 leaves of the shamrock (if you have enough shamrocks). When you’re finished use the shamrocks to create a festive math bulletin board in your classroom.
Want to keep it simple? Draw a few shamrocks on a worksheet and have students create shamrock problems for each other.
