  1. 1. SKITTLES GRAPHING Lesson plan created by: Christine Pope
  2. 2. Subject Area: Math Grade Level: First Length of Lesson: 60 minutes Group Size: Individual work
  3. 3. Standards M1D1: Students will create simple tables and graphs, and interpret them.  Interpret tally marks, picture graphs, and bar graphs.  Pose questions, collect, sort, organize and record data using objects, pictures, tally marks, picture graphs, and bar graphs. M1P5: Students will represent mathematics in multiple ways.  Create and use representations to organize, record, and communicate mathematical ideas.  Select, apply, and translate among mathematical representations to solve problems.  Use representations to model and interpret physical, social, and mathematical phenomena.
  4. 4. Objectives  Students will create simple tables and graphs and interpret them (M1D1). Students will represent mathematics in multiple ways (M1P5).
  5. 5. Materials  54oz bag Skittles  Condiment cups  Crayons or colored pencils  Smart-board or overhead projector  Book by Stuart Murphy and Tricia Tusa Lemonade for Sale  Hand sanitizer  Laminating sheets  Colored paper  Sorting mat  Skittles graph worksheet  Pencils  3-digit skittles math worksheet (addition)
  6. 6. Introduction (approx. 5 min) Prior to the beginning of the lesson, have each student sanitize their hands and their desk. While passing out materials and leading into Review encourage participation by asking a series of questions such as: • Has anyone in the class ever heard the term “graph”? • Can anyone describe to me what a graph is? • Can anyone tell to me what a graph looks like? • Can anyone tell me what you think we use graphs for?
  7. 7. Review (approx. 10 minutes) When finished passing out materials read out loud to the class Lemonade for Sale by Stuart Murphy and Tricia Tusa. When finished reading, transition students into their lesson by viewing various types of graphs (bar, picture, line) using the overhead projector or smart-board.

  9. 9. Lesson Focus (approx. 20 min) Part One: Be sure that each student has the necessary materials at his or her work station. For class demonstration, take 20 Skittles from the bag and sort them into groups by color on the sorting mat. Count the number of Skittles in each color group by using tally marks. Then create a bar graph displaying the number of Skittles in each color. The color of each bar in the graph will represent that same color Skittle; a red bar represents red Skittles, a yellow bar represents yellow Skittles, and soon. At this point, answer any questions before allowing the students to get started. Continued on next slide…..
  10. 10. Lesson Focus cont. Part Two: Each student will sort his or her Skittles just as shown. They will count the Skittles using tally marks. Once all of the Skittles are tallied, the students can begin constructing their bar graphs. Part Three: While the students are working, encourage participation by asking questions such as… • How did you know how tall to make the bars on the graph? • How many more yellow Skittles did you have than purple? • Which color Skittle is your favorite? Concluding the focus, ask students to write one question that could be answered by looking at their bar graph.
  11. 11. Conclusion (approx. 10 min) The students will be given a Skittles 3-Digit Addition Math Sheet. They will total up combinations of three different colors of Skittles. This sheet contains ten addition problems using the data from the My Skittles Graph. For every correct answer the children will receive an additional Skittle, afterwards they can then eat their data.
  12. 12. Assessment (10-15min.) Teacher will use overhead projector or Smartboard to lay out Skittle candies. Students are then given another graph and are asked to graph the shown Skittles silently and independently. Students will used color pencils or crayons to graph accordingly. As students finish they raise their hand and the teacher collects their graph for evaluation.
