If you have a mixture of above and below-level learners, check out these suggestions for keeping students on track with the concepts:

### 🆘 Support Struggling Students

For students who need additional support, consider providing them with a multiplication chart to help with basic math facts. Additionally, encourage students to reference previous assignments, posters or anchor charts, reminding them of how to convert a fraction to a decimal and vice versa.

### ➕ Challenge Fast Finishers

For students who need an additional challenge, consider editing the numbers to include more challenging conversions.

## Easily Prepare This Resource for Your Students

Assign this interactive activity in Google Classroom. Please be sure to open in Edit mode, not Presentation mode. Students will drag/drop and type in responses to complete the activities.
