I WILL use this plan in my classroom when we get to Fractions, Decimals and Percents (FDP). This is a well thought out lesson with different avenues for the students. One thought for gifted students, use the 8x8 square or other perfect squares for them to create their designs. Students with all motor skills and technological skills were thought of during the lesson.

I normally find an idea on the web and tear it apart to make it useable, then is 5 out of five stars!
