Instructional Ideas

  • Calculate and graph the yellow goldfish as a class, demonstrating as learners count their own
  • Once learners have completed their graphs (and assuming you have handed out the entire bag), gather class data and create a large graph of what was in the whole bag of goldfish
  • Make eating their snack a learning experience—have them eat the color they had the least of first, and move in order to most
Classroom Considerations

  • The worksheet does not have directions or an example telling learners how to fill out the graph; make sure you explain this first
Pros

  • Many concepts covered in one activity, including most and least, tallying, graphing, and addition
Cons

  • None
