Pod Pysgodyn- using data

This is the perfect activity for a math class. Have your Children spend a few minutes outside gathering leaves and then, Together talk about what you have found, sort the leaves by shape or colour and create a leaf graph with their findings. 
Generate your own questions such as...


How many more green leaves are there than brown ?
What is the total number of leaves on your leaf graph?
If I added 10 more green leaves how many green leaves would there be altogether.

If 10 children in your class collected 7 leaves each, how many leaves would there be altogether?

Mr G said that you have collected too many leaves and he would like you to put half of them back. How many leaves would you now have?
