How many states have you visited? We’re getting into one my favorite part of teaching statistics – data collection! I created this free printable to help my statistics students figure out how many states they have visited since students don’t typically know that fact off the top of their heads. I know that I can’t tell you how many states I’ve visited.
I printed the maps on letter sized paper and put them in dry erase pockets to allow students to easily figure out how many states they have visited.
MATH = LOVE RECOMMENDS…
I cannot imagine teaching math without my dry erase pockets! They instantly make any activity more engaging and save me countless hours at the copy machine since I can use the same class sets of copies year after year.
Here are my current go-to recommendations:
If you don’t have a classroom set of dry erase pockets, you could also use heavy duty sheet protectors. But, I highly recommend investing in a classroom set of the pockets since they are so much more durable.
I realize there isn’t much to this file, but I hope that I can help keep someone else from having to recreate the wheel!
This prompt leads to a great opportunity to practice making dotplots! I plan to use these with my make your own dot plot magnets.
I have also created printable versions with 2 and 4 to a page if you want to skip the dry erase pockets and just have students mark the states they have visited directly on the map.
My blogging frequency has drastically decreased with the start of the school year. Hopefully as I begin to get back in the swing of things, I can find time to start posting regularly again. Though, I doubt I will be posting daily as I was during the summer. I think I am going to aim for 2-3 blog posts per week during the school year.
