Excel-lent spring project! This classroom-tested activity is perfect to re-engage your students before or after state testing!
Students will sort and count M & M candies, each using Excel to create a bar graph displaying/comparing the colors found in each individual small bag of M & M's. Each student will search and insert clipart or name-brand images of each candy color into each bar of graph.
Project file includes sample bulletin board display poster, sorting and counting record sheet, project directions in individual student checklist form, and rubric to grade the finished graph.
Samples of student work are available to view on my classroom web site here: http://www.mrsdingman.com/ExcelGraphing.html#anchor_439
