Measurement and Variation

Examine the concept of variation through observation and measurement. Middle schoolers will study a peanut and record any distinguishing characteristics visible as well as sketch their peanuts and describe them in writing. Their peanut is put in a bag with others and they try to identify it. Middle schoolers then receive 15-20 peanuts in which they make measurements and examine the variation in length of the different peanuts and the variation in measurements.
