Bunny Hop Freebie

Hi everyone! I am thrilled you hopped on by during TBA's Freebie Hunt! This is sooo much fun blog-hopping and gathering goodies along the freebie trail. Teaching blogs simply rock!

Your egg-stra special treat from me is an activity that uses Easter eggs to teach statistics. I have used this activity with preschoolers on up to high schoolers. (I just provide more assistance with the little ones.) So everyone should be able to enjoy this freebie- Yippee!

This simple activity teaches statistics in a meaningful way. First, fill 10 Easter eggs with a random number of jelly beans and hide them. Number each egg on the outside with a permanent marker. Have your children/students find the eggs. (If you do not want to have your children or students hunt for the eggs, fill a basket with them.) As your child/student opens each egg, have him record the number of jelly beans in each. Last, have him calculate the mean, median, mode, and range.



Click on the image below to grab your freebie. :) You're going to it since it has been "Leslie-fied" by the AMAZING Leslie over at KindergartenWorks. Thanks to my sweet blogging buddy for helping me out. (I still have not mastered turning my ideas into cute printables yet.)



Hoppy Easter everyone!


Now hop on over to Miss Kindergarten, the wonderful blogger who coordinated this fantastic egg hunt. Enjoy filling your virtual Easter basket!

I love the jellybean guessing activity! I am going to put this in a math center. My students will have so much fun with this, and it's great number practice.
Thanks

Thank you so much for the statistics activity! It is such a fun and creative idea to use with a somewhat boring math concept. Also, thanks for your sweet comment about my PEMDAS chart. I love to hear feedback and comment from people. =)
