Suggestions for this lesson:
-Use this as an assessment piece based on the work you have already done in working on understanding line plots in your classroom
-Use this as a reward activity that is still curriculum based.
-Use this as a review for the end of a unit.
-Use this as an introduction to line plots in your classroom as a “hook.”
Things you will need:
-A class set of print outs from this packet for your class
-An anchor chart to explain to students how to create a line plot (I suggest you model how to create a line plot before using this activity)
-Skittles candy for your class
Classroom examples will be posted on my blog soon so you can see how I’ve implemented it in my own class.
Common Core Standards:
