If your class is anything like mine, they can not stop talking about the upcoming Super Bowl!
This activity was inspired by Marshawn Lynch's love for Skittles. What's better than Lynch, Skittles, and Common Core Standards all mixed into one activity?
This activity is appropriate for grades 3-5 and is aligned to the Measurement and Data Common Core Standards for grade 3 (see standards linked to this post, as well as in the packet).
In this activity, the students count and graph how many of each color candy they grabbed. The graph requires students to color one football for every two candies, therefore they will need to color halves of the footballs to represent odd numbers. When they finish with their graph, there is a question sheet called "Interpret Your Graph" on which they will need to answer questions relating to their data.
I've created two similar activities that involve grabbing a handful of Skittles and graphing the amounts. For the grades K-2 activity, please click here:
Enjoy and GO HAWKS!
