Solve and Draw no-prep printables for are an easy, no-prep way to make practice with percent calculations and percent word problems more engaging. This resource may be used as a fun quiz or review and is a perfect no-prep sub day resource.
How Solve & Draw Activities Work
Students solve the percent problems and add to the drawing based on their answers. Students are directed on what to draw but are able to personalize the item to their preferences and drawing styles. Drawings range from stick figures to anime inspired to cartoons to realistic and everything in between. Drawing is no-prep because it can be done with the student’s normal writing utensil (pen or pencil). You may choose to allow colored pencils, crayons, or markers but they are not required. This works well as a homework option for families who may not have those supplies to offer and is a great “print and go” resource for sub days, warm ups, and math centers!
Solve & Draw Fraction Printables work well to extend thinking and for early finishers. An optional challenge page is included that can be copied on the back of the worksheet – this gives students an extension opportunity by asking them to create a math equation that fits one of the incorrect drawing prompts or to create a math equation and their own drawing prompts. They can then add the correct drawings to their own paper or you can share them with the whole class for further practice!
Calculating the percent of a number in two forms: finding the percent and finding the whole, and calculating percent in a word problem with whole numbers and decimals.
