A whole class game that consolidates your students’ knowledge of measurement and graphing concepts in a fun way!
We’ve just received a call from Principal Nolan from Rainbow Road Elementary School, and they have a real dilemma! They held their highly anticipated field day today but have unfortunately lost the final points tally. This means they don’t know which team won the field day. They need your help!
Students are required to use the results from the 3 events provided to determine which team received the most points overall. They will be graphing the points as they go.
The activities include converting units of measurement, finding the average, sequencing, and graphing data.
