Meenal ParikhN Olmsted First graders are blessed with a naivete and a natural tendency to be creative. Every year, when it is the th day of school, I read aloud a book about aging e.

Prior to collecting the data, have students estimate the data results for both the coins and dice.
Flip a coin times.
Roll a dice times. Some computers may have a digital coin or dice. Using this would be a fun addition to the traditional flipping and tossing. Students can then total their tally marks and compare data.

Pennies are not allowed. The goal is to bring in something different than everyone else. Those whose collections are not duplicated get to choose a prize from the prize box. One year we used white poster paper and put spots on it to the theme of Dalmatians. This was the year the movie came out.
We punched out holes on either end of the glasses and tied yarn. I had parents to help, 1 at each group and it was not a difficult activity to do.
If it's a nice day you can do it outdoors or out the classroom door Which ever is your style. Sort colors together to make 4 groups of 25 or you can have each child in a learning group have a different necklaces of 25 to total There are many different variations depending on how long you want to spend with this activity.
