Last week the children in Grade 1 learnt how to create a graph.
On Monday the children were given a packet of Smarties each.
We had to count all the Smarties, then count the number of Smarties in each colour and graph that information.
Some people had no Smarties of a certain colour. Some people’s graphs were very even and some graphs had lots of colours. The number of Smarties in each box also varied quite a bit too!
After we had coloured our graph and recorded the information we were able to eat the Smarties. That was the best part and the lesson.
Afterwards we recorded all the individual graphs onto a whole class graph. There were alot of Smarties altogether, 292 in fact! Our whole class graph showed that blue was the most popular colour with 60 blue Smarties. We had the least purple Smarties with only 24.
