Product Description
Great way to introduce students to line plots! I used Skittles, but you can use any other candy with the same colors. Helps students practice writing fractions, identifying wholes, finding equivalent fractions, and creating line plots. Plus, they get to eat candy!

Directions:

1. Give all students the same number of pieces of candy, but make sure that it will easily break into fractions (e.g., 12).
2. Have students count the number of pieces of candy they have and figure out the fraction for their "whole". (e.g. 12/12).
3. Have students count the number of yellow pieces they have and write that number on the line. Then have them figure out the fraction for the yellow pieces. (e.g., 3 yellow pieces = 3/12 or 1/4).
4. Repeat for the other 4 colors.
5. Have students use colored pencils to graph their findings: Students should place an "X" above the correct for the number of times it occurred. (I have students use colored pencils so they can see which candy had which fraction).
6. Allow the students to enjoy their candy!
