Teachers Talk

I asked my son the other day what his favorite math lesson has been during his time in elementary school. He didn’t even have to take a second before he said, “Oh, that’s easy! It was the Skittles lesson!”

1.  His teacher passed out a snack-sized bag of skittles to each student.

2.  She then had each child draw a graph that allowed room for each of the five flavors of skittles. A snack sized package of skittles has 12-15 skittles in it.

3.  The students were asked to open their bag of skittles and graph them.
