Design-A-Dragon - fun Ratio & Proportion lesson!
Differentiated dragon-themed lesson, where students begin by designing their own dragon using the guidelines on the worksheets. All their dragons are combined to make a colony, and each group can take it in turns to go up to the board to fill in tally charts about their dragon, such as it's colour, habitat etc. The back of the worksheet then allows student to use the class data to work out ratios, such as the ratio of red to yellow dragons in the class colony. Worksheets are ability differentiated (bronze = low ability, gold = high). Extension task and plenary also on the presentation.
