Use Fruit Loops in your math class to assess your Kindergarten or 1st grade class and help students have interactive fun with math. This is a great way to introduce math without opening the textbooks yet. It's math with a tasty twist. It includes everything you need except the box of Fruit Loops!

OVERVIEW

The students will be given a handful of Fruit Loops by the teacher and they will practice sorting by color, graphing, place value, adding and subtracting, put them on a number line to count the total, graph the class totals, math inquiry questions and prediction. They will also have practice of counting how many tens and ones.

INCLUDED

• Graphing Sheet where students will make a bar graph with their Fruit Loops. They will get to color in their graph and then answer inquiry questions with classmates about the data.
• Lesson Plan has a lesson flow and a suggested way to use the resources
• Inquiry Question Sheet where students will ask classmates various questions on their data
• Various Worksheets in color and Black and White
• Interactive Lesson Opportunities
• Extension Ideas includes several more lesson plan ideas that can be done with the lesson or on another day.
• Color Sorting Worksheet where students get to sort the fruit loop colors, count how many of each color and draw in their fruit loops.

Fruit Loops not included!

HOW IT IS SET UP

The teacher has students make predictions about the activity and even get to add the information onto a prediction sheet. Then the teacher passes out a handful of Fruit Loops to each student. The students start with sorting the Fruit Loops by color and counting. This is a great chance for the teacher to see if students know their colors and can count up to 10 or more than 10. Then the students will graph the data. This is a great opportunity to see what they know about graphing. The students will also get to count the total number on a easy to use number line and break those numbers into finding the tens and ones. The activity is wrapped up by an inquiry questions sheet and of course eating the Fruit Loops by a listening activity.

Plan for this activity to take more than one day or plan for a large block of time.

Students love this math lesson because they get to eat Fruit Loops! They think it is the coolest activity. Most students are so engaged in the activity that they don't realize that their teacher is walking around gathering data for the year. Students enjoy learning math without opening their text books. It is a great opportunity to see how the students do with self control.

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Understand that the two digits of a two-digit number represent amounts of tens and ones. Understand the following as special cases:
Count to 120, starting at any number less than 120. In this range, read and write numerals and represent a number of objects with a written numeral.
Compose and decompose numbers from 11 to 19 into ten ones and some further ones, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record each composition or decomposition by a drawing or equation (e.g., 18 = 10 + 8); understand that these numbers are composed of ten ones and one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, or nine ones.
Organize, represent, and interpret data with up to three categories; ask and answer questions about the total number of data points, how many in each category, and how many more or less are in one category than in another.
Identify whether the number of objects in one group is greater than, less than, or equal to the number of objects in another group, e.g., by using matching and counting strategies.
