Girl Scout Cookies Graph
Stacey Mitchell, Kindergarten Teacher
Examine which type of Girl Scout cookie is the class' favorite.
You will need a large piece of butcher paper, and boxes of Girl Scout cookies.
- Purchase two to four types of Girl Scout cookies.
- Break cookies into small bite sized pieces and allow children to taste each cookie.
- Make a Venn Diagram graph that says, "Which Girl Scout cookie is your favorite?"
- Have children place cookie shaped cut outs in the appropriate places on the graph.
Editor's Note: Another important skill can be introduced into this activity by analyzing the results shown in the graph. After graphing activities with my class, I prefer to ask what the graph tells us about the information we gathered. I then write their quotes and display them along with the graph.
For example, "Only 2 people liked Caramel deLites." --James; "Most people liked Thin Mints." --Nicole.
