The Game of Chance

Third graders use manipulatives to determine the probability of outcomes. In this probability lesson, 3rd graders roll dice and use spinners to determine the probability of outcomes. They determine if games are fair/unfair based on their experiments. They work with the words; certain and equally likely/not likely. They create a number game using a spinner as a culminating activity.

When I am trying to find an alternative lesson from my norm, I try Lesson Planet, and always find a lesson that I can use. Sometimes a different perspective from a colleague can be that "point" that will work for that concept. I really feel that Lesson Planet is very well organized and easy to use. Thank you so much Lesson Planet for your help in my classroom.
