making chart and graphs with kids

Bee's really into making charts and graphs right now.

She asked everybody she could find this weekend to participate.

She came up with her own topics and categories.

Did you know there are only four choices of TV shows?

We used some very old M&Ms to make a pie chart or circle graph.

First you sort them out.

Then circle them up. We had to take out the dark brown since we didn't have room on the paper.

Trace a circle around the circle of candies. Draw a line from the point where the colors change to the center of the circle.

Remove M&M's and color in. Label as you see fit. You can eat the candies unless they are older than you are. In that case, toss them.

OK, taste one if you don't believe me, then agree to toss them.

I have some M&M's that need to be tossed. I see there is a use for them. I believe she got the idea for making the graphs from her daddy.

Old M & Ms???? Never heard of such a thing. I think they're consumed within a few hours around here....

I know it is 2014, but just wanted to write and say THANKS! My son is in 3rd grade and wanted to create a twist on a pie graph. We used Skittles and a large piece of paper to figure it out.
Anything hands-on wins!
