Introduction:

The Super Bowl graphing projects build on each other and are, therefore, suitable for grade 1 through grade 3.

Grade 1 students should do the predictions and tally worksheets.

Grade 2 students should do the predictions, estimation, and tally worksheets.

Grade 3 students should complete all the worksheets:  predictions, estimation, tally and bar graphs.

Note:  Every child is an individual.  As with everything on the website, these grade levels are just a suggestion.  Ability of the child, level of supervision and size of the group all play a role in whether the project is suitable.

 


Project 1:  Predict the Winner

Super Bowl is a football game that is celebrated early each year (January or February) in the United States.  The winner of this game receives the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

Talk to the children about "predictions".  A prediction is a fancy word for a guess about the future.  Predictions can be made lots of different ways:

Encourage the children to chose the way they want to make their predictions.

Project 2:  Estimate the Group's Results

An estimate is a calculated guess of the approximate amount of an item without having exact information.

Divide the predictions into two separate piles based on which team was chosen to win.  Spread each pile out on a separate table or pin them up on the bulletin board.

Estimate how many Team 1 results and how many Team 2 results you had in your group.  Don't count!  Just estimate.

Project 3:  Tally the Group's Results

Depending on the number of children you're working with divide into smaller groups or do this as one large group.  If you're doing this at home, you can add some extra results by getting dad, mom, brother, grandpa, etc to participate.

Tally marks are a quick way to visually count a large number of results.  Rather than trying to keep track of a count, you make a tally mark for each item, then you can count the tally marks (by 5's).  This is an intermediate step for graphing.

Project 4:  Bar Graph the Group's Results

Depending on the number of children you're working with divide into smaller groups or do this as one large group.  If you're doing this at home, you can add some extra results by getting dad, mom, brother, grandpa, etc to participate.

Using your tally worksheet (or starting from scratch), make a bar graph of your group's Super Bowl team winner predictions.
