Bring fall into your classroom with this math lesson! Students use seasonally collected items such as seedpods, sticks, and leaves to estimate, create graphs, analyze data, and find ratios. Activity includes teacher guide, student investigation sheets, and special needs modification suggestions. This math exploration also provides plenty of room to add additional options for students who need more of a challenge. Activity can be extended to include measurement practice and word problem experience if desired.
A great activity for 1-3 class sessions! Students should have previous experience with estimation, and graphing data. Teacher may use this activity to introduce or provide a review of the concept of ratios.
