Mode, Median, and Range Foldable

'Tis the season for State Assessments :(  Before Spring Break our 3rd - 6th graders took the reading assessment.  Tomorrow we return to school after a week off!  We will begin the math assessments soon.  Next week I will be spending my time with the classroom teachers and another special services teacher preparing the 3rd and 4th graders on concepts that are showing up as "most difficult" on their practice tests.

I was assigned the task of preparing 3rd graders on the indicator that addresses mode, median, and range (also maximum and minimum values)!  I created a lesson that utilizes a FOLDABLE.  If you can't tell from the pictures and need a more detailed explanation of the foldable, be sure to let me know!  I will have 30 minutes to teach the lesson and I will see all the 3rd graders during the course of the week, not just the Title I Math students.  We will create the foldable.  I will have done most of the assembly to save time.  The students will just glue down the information and work through the examples.

Next, I used our local weatherman's forecast to create page to check for understanding of the assessed indicator.  I hope you can find a use for this activity with your students!  Enjoy the downloads!

  Here are the downloads!



I love this! Thanks for sharing! Unfortunately, I can't download the examples page. It's a definitions file instead.

Thanks Amanda! I'm glad you find it useful. I think I have fixed the problem and lucky for you I discovered a mistake today while teaching my lesson. It was on the example page so I fixed it before I redid the link! Enjoy!

I really like this foldable! This used to be a third grade standard for us, but no longer is. I am going to pass this along to our fourth grade teachers! Thanks so much!
