๐Ÿ“ŠDomino Graphing๐Ÿ“Š

Graphing, a tedious data analysis concept… OR a fun way to accumulate cool information. I choose the latter! I have a colored bucket of dominos and I put it to a new use. I put the students into four groups in each corner of the room (we call this corner grouping). Then I poured out a random amount of different colored dominos (four colors- yellow, blue, green, orange — plus I hid ONE random dark yellow domino to throw the groups off–seeing if they would create a new color scheme or add it to the yellow group)…The students needed to separate the colors as a team, count them, and then figure out how to create a bar graph using  a title, numbers and the colors listed. We had been discussing data and bar graphs the entire week and it was assessment time. They soared! Here are the beautiful results; and all it took was graphing paper, dominos and crayons.
