On the 100th Day of School, the class randomly picked 100 Fruit Loops from the box. If the large chart isn't mounted on a poster, the chart may have to be flat on the floor until the glue dries. Jelly Beans and M&M's are also a good ideas.
We then sorted the Froot Loops by color and glued the froot loops to a large graph.
The students then created a graph by hand at their desks.
When done they signed their name on the board to wait for their "time on the computer.
Using that information, they used "Graph Club CD" and each created a 100th Day Fruit Loop Graph.
A class graph is created to show that one picture represents "two" objects. (If time permits, individual graphs may be created as well.
Children create questions that correlate with their graph.
