Join the Dots

I was planning a decimals lesson for my year 7 class. Upon searching Colin Fosters excellent resources I noticed:

“Oral work: Go around the class counting up in 0.3’s,
say, beginning at 5.
Will we ever hit 100?
What’s the closest we’ll get?”

It occurred to me that this sort of practice could be adapted to a ‘join the dots” puzzle.

My colleague is teaching FDP (fraction – decimals – percentages), so asked me to create a puzzle making a picture of a Corgi dog – she owns two!
