In this activity from the Children's Museum of Houston, students explore how different spinners effect the probability of their results. Younger students will use this activity to collect data and graph their results, while older students will have deeper discussions about their predictions and theorectical vs experimental probabilty. Suggestions for extension activities, literature connections, and other web activites are included.
I like how this activity requires students to think about which spinner they would choose. This can definitely be done without visiting the Children's Museum of Houston, but it definitely makes me wish I lived close enough to go there.
