Jelly Bean math graphing

Before Lake Myra tracked out, our classroom did a graphing activity with jelly beans.  The students had a bunch of fun sorting, graphing and answering addition questions about the jelly beans.  This activity was fun but it also included essential skills for Kindergarten students to know and practice. 

The students were with their math buddies, and they received a plate of jelly beans.  They sorted the jelly beans by color and then graphed how many of each color they had.  After graphing, the students completed sentences about what color had the MOST and LEAST jelly beans.  Then they completed addition sentences relating to how many red jelly beans plus pink jelly beans.

Overall, the students loved doing something a little different in math!  Oh and they got to eat a jelly bean! :)  I don't think anyone was a fan of the black jelly beans!

Enjoy the pictures :)
