How can we answer that question?
This week in 5th grade we had a globe toss! We tossed the globe 100 times and tallied where our left thumb landed: Water or Land? You can get more specific and tally which body of water or which continent you land on. Each student wrote a hypothesis before conducting the class experiment.
Extra Globe Toss Activities:
1. Create a pie chart with the class results
2. Probability:"What is the probability my thumb will land in water?"
3. Percents:"If I toss the globe 50 times and my thumb lands in water 47 times, what is the percentage of times my thumb landed on water?"
1. Inflatable globe
2. Sheet to record globe toss results
