Congratulations you've just been given the job of designing a new zoo! Your zoo is large enough to house 4 types of animals. In this investigation you will decide how to set up each of their habitats using the help of percents!
1) What 4 animals do you want to have in your zoo? Make a list of them.
2) Make a list of things you may need to know about an animal to build it a place to live. For each of the animals you chose, research this information.
1) Fold your piece of printer paper into 4 equal boxes. Each box will represent the space given to each animal.
2) Label each box with the animal you want to live there.
3) Based on the research you did estimate what percentage of grass, rocks, ice, water, etc. that the animal may need in its habitat to survive. According to this percentage mark the amount of space each piece will take up in the animal's habitat.
First convert the fraction to a percent.
Determine and explain, through investigation using concrete materials, drawings, and calculators, the relationships among fractions (i.e.,with denominators of 2, 4, 5, 10, 20, 25, 50, and 100), decimal numbers, and percents
