Looking for an easy and releavant Back to School activity? Look no further!
This Back to School Birthday Chart Maths activity will get your students' brains re-renaged with learning, by asking them to collect data from their peers, graph that data in a pictograph form and then make statements on the data they have collected (teacher choice as to complexity of the statements).
This .pdf file contains 2 cucpake sizes, 2 versions of a graph and a data collection tally table.
Simply choose the cupcake size you wish to use; the larger cupcakes are designed if you have a small class, or if you would like to challenge your students so that 1 cupcake = 2 students. The larger cupcakes can be used as 1:1 if there are 4 or less student birthdays in each month. The smaller cupcakes allow for up to 6 student birthdays a month and are designed to be used 1 cupcake = 1 student.
Each student will require a tally sheet, a graph (either blank or with columns to guide them) as well as the relevant amount of cupcakes for your class.
The LARGE cupcakes have 28 to a page.
The SMALL cupcakes have 70 to a page.
Simply print the desired amount of pages for you class, have students collect their class mates birthdays, colour in the cupcakes, stick the cupcakes to the graph to reflect the collected data, then make statements about the data FOR EXAMPLE: "There are no students in Room 7 whose birthday is in August" OR "5 of Room 7's students have their birthday in November"
