St. Patrick's Day is a great opportunity for students to practice their data analysis and interpretation skills. Lucky them! These activities focus on gathering, observing, and understanding data patterns. The package includes:
"Lucky Charm Lab" - In this lab, students predict and determine the ratio between oats and marshmallows in a box of Lucky Charms by measuring mass and volume of each. Is it healthy enough for our leprechaun friend to eat for breakfast?
"Sitting on a Gold Mine!" - This worksheet focuses on overall tonnage of gold mined each year throughout the world and where the major industrial gold mines are located (NO PREP!)
"Tis a Grand Day in Ireland" - This worksheet uses climographs to compare the weather in Ireland and the USA. It includes data interpretation questions to challenge their understanding (NO PREP!).
"Have You Seen Copper Green?" - In this lab, students determine how much mass a small copper object, such as a penny, gains after turning green from corrosion.
"Vernal Equinox" - This worksheet teaches students about the vernal equinox and has them compare the correlation between Earth's declination throughout the year and the amount of sunlight hours in a day (NO PREP!)
These activities are great to get your students excited about St. Patrick's Day and practice their data skills at the same time. Enjoy!!!
