Spin That Dreidel! is a great way to combine math skills with a cultural activity. This graph can be used any time of the year or during the winter holiday season to enhance your Hanukkah unit or celebrations.
Children spin the dreidel top and record each result on the bar graph. Spinning the dreidel continues until one column on the graph reaches 10. Then children compare the results to find which symbol had the greatest, least, more than/less than, how many more or less, etc.
The only thing you provide is a dreidel or two and this activity is ready to be enjoyed by all!
