This is an 10 page pdf file.
4 full page color sets of "data" (Christmas pictures)
2 full page gray scale pictures of Set 1 & 2
1 landscaped full page gray scale pictures of Set 1 & 2
2 half page black & white student sheets to create bar graphs
4 half page color answers (1 for each set of data)
Ideas for use:
You could laminate the color sets & let students use wax pencils or dry erase markers to help count.
The picture papers could be projected on a smart board for full class guided practice.
This could be a math station
The grayscale sets could be copied for each student & sent home as part of a Christmas Break assignment.
The sets vary in difficulty - great to differentiate instruction.
This would be great for Common Core Math Standards:
Make a ready-to-use folder of this activity for the day you forget to bring the M&Ms!! ....or an extra filler for a substitute plan near the holidays......or that day you just can't stand to see one more math manipulative or let anyone out of their seat!! =)
