Use Fruit Loops in this Math activity in your class to assess your 1st or 2nd grade class and help students have interactive fun with math. This is a great Back to School Math Activity. It is also a fun way to work on graphing and place value and see what your students know. It’s math with a tasty twist. It includes everything you need except the box of Fruit Loops!
 
 
OVERVIEW
The students will be given a handful of Fruit Loops by the teacher and they will practice sorting by color, graphing, place value, adding and subtracting, put them on a number line to count the total, graph the class totals, math inquiry questions and prediction. They will also have practice of counting how many tens and ones.
 
INCLUDED
  • Graphing Sheet where students will make a bar graph with their Fruit Loops. They will get to color in their graph and then answer inquiry questions with classmates about the data.
  • Lesson Plan has a lesson flow and a suggested way to use the resources
  • Inquiry Question Sheet where students will ask classmates various questions on their data
  • Various Worksheets in color and Black and White

Fruit Loops not included!
 
HOW IT IS SET UP
The teacher has students make predictions about the activity and even get to add the information onto a prediction sheet. Then the teacher passes out a handful of Fruit Loops to each student. The students start with sorting the Fruit Loops by color and counting. This is an excellent chance for the teacher to see if students know their colors and can count up to 10 or more than 10. Then the students will graph the data. This is an excellent opportunity to see what they know about graphing. The students will also get to count the total number on an easy-to-use number line and break those numbers into finding the tens and ones. The activity is wrapped up by an inquiry questions sheet and of course eating the Fruit Loops through a listening activity.
 
Plan for this activity to take more than one day or plan for a large block of time.
 
HOW IT BENEFITS YOUR STUDENTS
Students love this math lesson because they get to eat Fruit Loops! They think it is the coolest activity. Most students are so engaged in the activity that they don’t realize that their teacher is walking around gathering data for the year. Students enjoy learning math without opening their textbooks. It is a great opportunity to see how the students do with self-control.
