Explore probability with these engaging, hands-on probability activities! This set includes 6 low-prep probability stations perfect for practicing probability skills and critical thinking. Quick and easy setup plus clear student directions make these activities perfect for centers or substitute days, too!

Lead your students to discover concepts of probability by exploring it on their own before teaching probability rules. Students will love exploring probability concepts through these fun activities, and won't even realize how much they're learning!

All of these probability activities use manipulatives and materials readily available in most classrooms, but I've also included printable manipulatives just in case you need them.

Includes:

  • 6 probability activities perfect for centers or stations
  • Station signs with instructions
  • Printable manipulatives
  • Student response sheets
  • Answer keys
  • Teaching notes

Students will love practicing basic probability concepts with a variety of common classroom materials. The stations include:

  1. Roll the Dice
  2. Number Tiles
  3. Playing Cards
  4. Colored Cubes (or marbles)
  5. Spinners
  6. Trash Can Toss (this one is always a student favorite!!)

Dena J says, "We had a blast working through these stations as an introduction to probability. Very clear directions for teacher and students!"

Chelsea G says, "Math should always be this much fun and this engaging."

Find probabilities of compound events using organized lists, tables, tree diagrams, and simulation.
Develop a probability model and use it to find probabilities of events. Compare probabilities from a model to observed frequencies; if the agreement is not good, explain possible sources of the discrepancy.
Approximate the probability of a chance event by collecting data on the chance process that produces it and observing its long-run relative frequency, and predict the approximate relative frequency given the probability. For example, when rolling a number cube 600 times, predict that a 3 or 6 would be rolled roughly 200 times, but probably not exactly 200 times.
Understand that the probability of a chance event is a number between 0 and 1 that expresses the likelihood of the event occurring. Larger numbers indicate greater likelihood. A probability near 0 indicates an unlikely event, a probability around 1/2 indicates an event that is neither unlikely nor likely, and a probability near 1 indicates a likely event.
Use data from a random sample to draw inferences about a population with an unknown characteristic of interest. Generate multiple samples (or simulated samples) of the same size to gauge the variation in estimates or predictions. For example, estimate the mean word length in a book by randomly sampling words from the book; predict the winner of a school election based on randomly sampled survey data. Gauge how far off the estimate or prediction might be.
