Choose to supplement your probability unit with this resource and you won't be disappointed with the outcome. Teach young mathematicians to organize information using tree diagrams and lists in order to determine the possible outcomes of specific situations. Depending on the prior knowledge of the class, extend this lesson plan by looking at the probability of certain outcomes or introducing the fundamental counting principle. Though intended for fourth grade, this lesson plan can be used across the upper-elementary grade levels and even into middle school.
