This is a Smart Notebook 11 file with 11 pages on Probability for Gr. 3-4.
Pg 1 Probability Cover page with probability terms
Pg 2 Probability terms and definitions
Pg 3 What is the probability...? Students read statements and drag the probability word that best describes the statement (likely, unlikely etc.)
Pg 4 What are the chances? Students will make a prediction about an interactive spinner and then spin to find out the outcome. They will slide the marker across the probability line to record their guess.
Pg 5 What are the chances? Spinner #2
Pg 6 Predicting "In 20 spins guess how often you will land on green." Students will spin and record results in a tally chart.
Pg 7 Predicting "In 15 spins how often will you land on red?"
Students will spin and record results in a tally chart.
Pg 8 Predicting If you place 4 red beads and 4 green beads into a paper bag, how likely are you to pull a red bead? You can try this in class with a paper bag or you can use the random selector that I have included on Pg 9
Pg 9 Random bead selector
Pg 10 Board game for up to 3 players. "Pick A Colour, Pick A Spinner" This Interactive game is fun for students to play and allows them to think about using what they have learned to give them an advantage in the game. Students will pick a tile colour and a spinner. The student to reach the finish line first, wins.
Pg 11 I have included a blank "Student Name Selector". I use this to pose probability questions such as, "What are the chances that a boy's name will be selected?" "What are the chances that your name will be selected?" Instructions on how to add your class list is given on the slide. Once you have added the names you can use this file over and over again as a Random Name Selector. I used to use random sticks to choose students for different tasks or monitor jobs but now I use the selector because the students LOVE IT!
