Fraction Paintings

We are still working on fractions.  As a fun "test" the students painted a fraction flower arrangement.  First, each student rolled a die to determine what their denominator was.  They sketched out a vase and drew the correct number of flowers in the vase.  They rolled the die again until they rolled a smaller number than their denominator.  That number became their numerator.  They painted that number of flowers any color they chose.  Then they painted the remainder of their flowers and added details to their vase.  They titled their painting using a fraction of a color.
