Elementary school students learn about graphs with Lucky Charms
First graders at the Clarendon Elementary School recently learned about graphs by using Lucky Charms cereal. Each student received a handful of different marshmallows to sort out. They were allowed to sort the cereal by color, shape, or size. After sorting them out, the students had a choice as to whether or not to make a pictograph or bar graph to record numbers for each type of marshmallow. After finishing, they used the data they compiled from their graphs to answer questions.
Then, finally, they ate the finished product.
