In this activity students will cut out pictures (provided) and sort them into categories of heat sources. The categories are electricity, friction, sun, earth's interior and chemical reaction. Good hands on activity!
Students will build a tree diagram to figure out all of the possible combinations that can be made out of the shirts, pants and sweaters in their suitcase. They will also answer questions of probability based on their tree diagram. Good for a short
End of unit test for probability.
Questions include placing events along a probability line between impossible and certain,outcomes and predictions of flipping a coin, outcomes and predictions of rolling 2 dice, and predicting and conducting a
This is a unit test that includes spinners, dice, double dice, tree diagrams and an area model. It requires students to represent probability as a fraction, find all possible combinations and explain their thinking.
This worksheet package is designed to be used with 6 stations set up around the room. The stations take about 20-25 minutes each to complete. The instruction cards for the stations are available as well (separately). Students will work in groups and
A great fun way for students to predict, explain, conduct the experiment and then compare the results to their prediction.
Design a Bag (Part 1) - students are designing a bag with tiles and describing the probability of certain tiles in the bag
In this activity students will roll 2 dice and record the sum of those two dice in the corresponding box. Whichever column fills up first is the 'winner'. Before starting, they will predict which number will be rolled the most. The purpose of this
Students can work alone or in partners to discover the advantages and disadvantages of the different types of pulley systems. It can be used with a textbook or in the computer lab as internet research.
This worksheet allows students to predict 3 times throughout the book using their words and sketches. It allows students to change their predictions as the story develops. It shows that good readers are always changing their predictions.
This is a great way to get at students thoughts and knowledge about a particular topic. Have students fill this out at the end of a lesson or introduction to something. This way you will get a better understanding of what they understand about the
