This project is for
PREK - THIRD GRADE CLASSES!!
Project Dates are
March 16 - 20, 2015

MATERIALS:
Each participating class will need to have
*1 box (per class) of General Mill's Lucky Charms.
*1 Class tally sheet for teacher to post results
* Paper towels or some item to sort shapes on
* Baggies (or plastic bags) to store Lucky Charms if you are pre bagging them (1 to 2 scoops each) for your students

As a GROUP -- we will be trying to prove that there are more GREEN CLOVERS (you might call them hats) than any other shape. As a classroom -- you might wish to create your own hypothesis to prove as well.

STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS:
1. The Teacher will need to register ONLINE for this project.

2. The Teacher will distribute Lucky Charms to their class. You are welcome to do this by separating into baggies, create a center area, or any other way you see will work within your classroom.

3. Each student will divide their Lucky Charms into the following marshmallow shapes:

HourGlass/Gold
Clovers
HorseShoes
Shooting Stars
Moons
Rainbows
Hearts
Balloons
Other

Click HERE for a picture of the shapes.
**We are NOT counting the oat shapes!!**
Also, if you have any other speciality shapes,
they will be classified as OTHER on the
final results page.

Also, we will be calling the green shape a
CLOVER on the tally sheets!

4. Students will count each marshmallow shape and write down their final tally count for that shape! Students are encouarged to create a graph to represent their individual count as well.

5. Students will add their individual count of each shape to a CLASS COUNT.

6. The class will create a final Class Count for their Lucky Charms. Teachers & students are encouraged to create a graph to represent their class count as well.

7. The teacher will visit the RESULT page to submit the Class results on with the total CLASS count of each shape between March 16 and March 21, 2015.

8. Final Results will be posted on Monday, March 23, 2015 (at 9pm) and the website will have an excel document with FINAL results for you to share with your students.

9. Each participating class that posts results will have their name added to the participant page.

10. Additional activity ideas and worksheets are
provided for teachers to expand this project for the entire week.

Please post results HERE
on or before March 21, 2015. THANK YOU
