When it is our turn to take the bag home, we work with our parents to choose something to put into the bag. We ask a question, present a problem or exploration for friends to solve.
This day, our friend brought Star Burst candy. We sorted the candy by color to discover which color there was most and which was least. Before we sorted, we made several estimated guesses. What we discovered was that there were more pink and less red. Next, we made a pattern using the colors. Then we each picked our favorite flavor and used the wrapper to make a graph. We discovered that our the flavor most liked by our class was red.
