Why Lesson Planet?
Budding mathematicians explore the concept of skip counting. They practice skip counting as they use it to determine the number of wheels that come to school at 3 different times throughout the day. They also create a data graph to show their findings. This activity allows young learners (They don't have to be writing numbers; they mark data on a car graphic provided.) to collect and compare data, skip count by 2s, create and read graphs.
