PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Teach your students about data landmarks in a fun way by having a watermelon seed spitting competition. Students will learn about mean/average, mode, minimum, maximum, range and outliers while having fun!

Gather the students, round up some volunteers, and pick a nice day to head outside.

Students will keep track of the distance for each of their seed spits. After the outdoor activities you will head back in to compile the data, organized the data so it is easier to interpret, find data landmarks (minimum, maximum, mean/average, median, range, mode) and identify any outliers.

Students will then make a graph of the class data and wrap up the fun event with a project of their choice to showcase all the fun they had and the math concepts learned.

This is a great way to start the year, or really at any time of the year!

Includes:
materials list
directions for each of the phases of the activities
parent volunteer letter and information sheet
student distance recording sheet
class data sheet
directions and requirements for final project
world watermelon seed spitting record
vocabulary cards
