What’s the Chance

Thrughout the week Grade 1B and 1C have been learning all about chance. We read some stories from Sunshine Online that talked about the chance of certain events occuring. After reading the stories we brainstormed a list of words that were associated with chance. Have a look at our words below:

Will Happen

Might Happen

Can’t Happen

Certainly

Possible

Never

Always

Perhaps

Impossible

Definite

Likely

False

Absolutely

Maybe

Fake

                           Very Likely                                  Not Likely                                                                        Highly Unlikely

We also used some great games on the interactive whiteboard to help us understand chance better. Use them at home to help you practise!

Can you think of an unlikely or a likely event? Be careful that they are not impossible or certain!
