****Please take a moment to rate this product, I really appreciate your feedback. Thank you.
*Use these spinners to have students practice probability hands on. Print/copy the spinners (I have found that printing onto cardstock or a thicker paper works best). Then, have the students use a large paper clip and the tip of their pencil to create the “spinner”. Simply place the paper clip down on the middle of the spinner, put the point of the pencil on the center and flick the paper clip with your finger!
*Some spinners will have a color appear twice; this is not a mistake. Those spinners are meant for discussions on likely, unlikely and impossible. I have grouped the spinners into equal chance spinners and spinners that have likely and unlikely colors. All Spinners are provided in color and blank so that you can create your own! Each page contains two of the same spinner for easy copying.
*Probability posters included for following terms with brief definitions: probability, likely, unlikely, certain and impossible.
These can be displayed around the room and used as visuals when discussing probability terms.
I have included a total of 8 worksheets/activites.
Probability worksheets 1-3: these are basic worksheets that focus on having students answer questions based on a probability situation including bags of candy and spinners. There are a variety of questions on each worksheet including word problems and questions that involve explanation. Answer keys are provided for these worksheets.
Experimental Probability Worksheets: These worksheets are created to practice experimental probability (performing experiments to calculate probability) There are a total of 4 experimental probability worksheets. Each one is designed to go along with a spinner included in this packet.
Experimental probability worksheet one=Equal chance spinner in 4 colors
Experimental probability worksheet two=spinners with red as the likely color-4 sections
Experimental probability worksheet three= equal chance spinner in color-3 sections
Experimental probability worksheet four= spinner with Red as the likely color- 3 sections
You can also use the templates to create different experiments with the blank spinners and/or students can create their own blank spinners and have classmates complete the experimental probability for their spinner!
Probability with Skittles Worksheet: This is the last activity in the packet. It guides students through a probability experience using a fun size bag of skittles. This is a great culmination activity to a unit on probability. It includes questions on mathematical probability, experimental probability, analyzing data to form conclusions and hypothesis, questions for discussion and the basics. Plus it is hands on!
