Simply take a piece of paper and label the colors and begin to sort and organize the colors into a bar graph. We talked about which color had more and less and which colors had the same amount. Then, the best part, we ate them. A great way to introduce beginning math concepts and vocabulary.
Candy Bar Graph
Yes, these are heart candies from Valentine’s Day! =) I can’t pass up a good deal. You can also make a candy bar graph with m&ms, fruity cheerios, gummy bears, fruit snacks, etc.
