Fun with M&M's

Our Students love M&M's, they usually get them for rewards. On Fridays, I like to do something fun and out of the regular routine during the week. This week I decided to use M&M's to reinforce a few concepts with the girls. (On a side note...they picked out their own clothes)

Sorting into color groups.

Princess Flower documenting how many of each color on the three plates. Butterfly and Ladybug counting each of their groups for Princess Flower to record. Princess Flower then determined the total number of M&Ms and found the average M&Ms that come in a Fun Size pack. She then determined the average of each color.

Making patterns.

Making letters with M&Ms.

Princess Flower's analysis:
If you were to have a fun size pack of M&Ms you probably would have 22. You would have 7 orange, 6 blue, 3 yellow, 3 green, 2 brown, and 1 red. You will always have more oranges than any other color.
