My students love this activity!
I print a copy for each pair of students and they can work together. We take a walk outside and tally the cars that drive by. They love that they can apply their math knowledge to something in the real world that they see everyday! (The color cars that are on the tally sheet are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, pink and gray. Please not black and white are not on the tally sheet.)
After the cars have been tallied, we return to the classroom to count the tally marks we made and write the numeral on our sheets to see which color car we saw the most and least of.
