This is a quick “get them out of their seats” activity that supports the following 4th grade Texas math standard:
4.9A (Represent data on a frequency table or dot plot.)
Includes 12 matches (24 cards).
: Give each student in the class one of the cards in this set. Half of the students should get a data set card, and the other half should receive a dot plot card. Students stand up, holding their cards. Teacher announces, “Find your match!”, and students walk around looking for their matches. Students stand by their matches as soon as they find them. Teacher can walk around and do a quick check using the answer key. Collect cards, shuffle them up, and repeat.
