I use this activity as a fun way to introduce line plot graphs and review range, mode and median.
Begin by having students collect data (paper clip chains or Lucky Charm Marshmallows) and use their data to create a class line plot graph. There are pages for them to record their data. Then find the mode, median and range for your class data. Students can record the class information if you wish (recording pages provided).
Then use the 4 posters to review range, median and mode and what you expect in a solid gold statement.
Next give students a set of number cards.Students use their number cards to determine range, mode and median and make 2 additional statements on their recording sheet.
They can also use the number cards to create a line plot graph.
The number cards are differentiated using 5 different number sets.
