This project is a 3-Day PROJECT
FOR PREK - THIRD GRADE CLASSES!!
This project is now over for 2008!

MATERIALS:
Each participating class will need to have
*1 box (per class) of General Mill's Lucky Charms. (14 oz size)
*1 tally sheet per child
*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. (Last year the winning shape was stars). 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:

Pots of Gold
Clovers
HorseShoes
Shooting Stars
Moons
Rainbows
Hearts
Balloons

**We are NOT counting the oat shapes!!**
Also, if you have any other speciality shapes, please DO NOT include
them in the final count. Thank You!

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 should also create a graph to represent their 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. The class should also create a graph to represent their Class Count.

7. The teacher will visit the RESULT page to submit the Class results on with the total CLASS count of each shape between March 12 and March 19, 2008.
(If your school is on break during this time, please contact Jennifer for an alternate submission plan.)

8. Final Results will be posted on Thursday, March 20, 2008 and the website will have an excel document will full results for you to share with your students.

9. Each participating class that posts results will have their name added to the participant page and will receive a certificate of participation for their involvement!

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

Registration is now CLOSED!
See you in 2009.
