Twister In MATH Class?


The above worksheet is one of my probability favorites.
Buy it on my new teachers pay teachers page!

I bought a handful of twister mats (so we can play 1 student/mat) and designed the activity above.  

Then, my 6th grade resource class followed along with the above worksheet to explore the concepts of fair games, hypothetical probability, and experimental probability.

They absolutely loved it.

Disclaimer: I am very aware that I should have written "theoretical probability"not "hypothetical probability" in my title. Sorry. Blame it on the science teacher in me. theory/hypothesis....theoretical/hypothetical....
