Projects by Jen - Lucky Charms Counting

On Thursday,  we were invited to join five other classrooms in a Skype conference call to take part in the Projects By Jen Lucky Charms Project.

To begin with, this was the first time we had ever used Skype with more than one class. We usually use google hang out so this was a new experience. It worked well for the most part except we couldn't see (only hear) two of the classes and some of the classes were dropped.  But it didn't really matter because it is great to learn with others.

We listened to most of a story read by a teacher librarian from one of the schools.

Then it was time to sort. We were each given our own bag of Lucky Charms cereal and we had to sort the different marshmallows.

After we finished sorting we tallied what we discovered.

We then brought our tallies to Ms. Lirenman so she could add them to our class tally chart.

We also added our results to here.

When we finished our sorting we skyped again with Ms. Rose's kindergarten class in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The following morning we shared our data with Mrs. Cassidy's class in Moose Jaw.  At first we were all surprised to see so many "moons" in our collection until some one told us that the moons are new and there are in a promotion right now.  That made their large number make much more sense.

What can you notice about the data shared?
