Bottle Cap Collection
The kids started a bottle cap collection over the summer. People are trashy around here, and we quickly accumulated a small trash can full. Then the kids stopped because they didn’t know where else to store them. They were counted from time to time but then mostly ignored. I was ready to throw them out so I announced as a farewell we would make bottle cap collection graphs! Rebecca made a bar graph today. She’s planning a pictograph tomorrow. Joshua took Rebecca’s graph figures and figured the probability of each kind of cap being chosen.
Rebecca’s was done on Microsoft Word. It won’t let me take a screen shot of it to show you. If you are really interested in seeing it, you can download the Word document by clicking on it’s link below (webgraph1). I didn’t know what would happen when I inserted a Word document. Pretty neat. I just learned something new!
Joshua’s was done online at http://nces.ed.gov/nceskids/createagraph/default.aspx
And the latest lapbook…from Homeschool Share… http://www.homeschoolshare.com/eagles.php
Joshua and Rebecca each did pieces, and I gave them to Joshua to put on the big paper. He, umm, did it very creatively. We can’t really fold it though, so it became a poster. 🙂
