Ratios and Proportions Activity for Proportional Relationships | Adventurous Joe


Looking for a highly engaging Ratios and Proportions Activity? This self-checking Proportional Relationships game is unlike anything your students have seen before and includes an animated story with alternate endings!

In this Adventurous Joe activity, Joe is camping in the Amazon Rainforest and leaves his canteen at the river after dark! Students must correctly find the probability of simple & and compound events so Joe can make it safely back to the river!

Problem types include: Solving problems involving proportional relationships, including finding unit rate, converting units of measure, and solving for a missing value from a word problem.
