I might start with the Wooly Worm Race as that is all about representing fractions using bar models and converting between decimals and percentages. Can be really telling as to who knows what. Many students who can use algorithms with fractions are not fluent with equivalence which can be seen quickly in that unit.
Then, maybe exploring some of the piggy bank units – seems simplistic but allows you to connect fractions and decimals to the money model to help.
Finally, going into shovelling the driveway, salting the driveway and pizza party are great for multiplying and dividing.
Hope this helps!
