Students will use their knowledge of the landmarks of data to complete the student activity sheet. They will find the minimum, maximum, range, mode, median, and mean of the candy hearts they receive. Students may work individually with an individual box of conversation hearts or they may work with partners. Teachers may prefer to give each student a scoop of candy hearts from a large bag of candy rather than giving each student an individual box. This activity will work either way.
After students record their data and analyze the sayings on the conversation hearts, they create a bar graph of the number of colored hearts they received.
This is an excellent activity to gather data grades for your students.
