PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I would highly suggest NOT doing these lessons right before lunch. All that talk about Thanksgiving Yummies had my mouth watering. I created these activities to compliment our study of data in math. We had been collecting, sorting, and representing data as part of the Investigations curriculum, but these actvities could be used by any grade level.

I began by having the children each write their favorite Thanksgiving Day food item onto one of the cards and illustrating their selection. I created two versions of the cards. One is primary ruled with a headline, midline, and baseline. The other is intermediate ruled. After reviewing the cards we brainstormed categories we could use to sort the cards. I've included several options as well as the numbers to create a large bar graph to display. I set up the intervals and had the class sit around a table to help sort. After we sorted and placed data, we discussed our observations.

I also had the students complete a writing project decribing their favorite Thanksgiving Day foods. These will be displayed with the adorable craft project shown in the photo below. Each student creates a Thanksgiving meal using construction paper on a paper plate.

This kit includes:
2 versions of the graphing cards (primary and intermediate ruled)
number interval cards
3 options for sorting the data
Favorite Food brainstorming organizer
3 detail descriptive writing graphic organizer
5 detail descriptive writing graphic organizer
intermediate ruled draft paper
primary ruled draft paper
intermediate ruled final copy paper
primary ruled final copy paper
basic sentence close activity with room for an illustration
individual graphing project page
