This would be a great activity for around Halloween time since it involves little packs of M&Ms or Skittles.
Students will use one candy to evaluate the colors and packaging.
After counting each color, students will figure out the ratio to total and percent of each color. They will also create a bar graph showing the number of each color. Students will analyze which color was found most frequency and which was used least. The last thing students will do is design their own packaging.
