Who likes plain vanilla ice cream? How about pecan mocha fudge? Or cotton candy? Create a 3-D classroom graph with Crayola® Model Magic® to show which ice cream flavors are tops.
Take a classroom poll to find out each student’s favorite ice cream flavor. Arrange your findings in a picture graph to make it easy to tell which flavor has more, or fewer, or the same number of votes.
On oaktag or posterboard, use Crayola Washable Markers to write the title of your graph in capital letters along the top. Use markers to write the names of the flavors along the bottom of the graph.
Use Crayola Erasable Colored Pencils to draw a small ice cream dish (or cone) on oaktag. Cut it out with Crayola Scissors. Use it as a pattern to draw identical dishes above each flavor name. Color the dish with Crayola Gel Markers.
Experiment with blending two or three colors of Model Magic to create your own ice cream colors. Lightly twist two colors together for a swirled effect. Add white to any color to get an icy, pastel look. To make scoops of ice cream, roll a small ball of Model Magic to represent each vote. Flatten slightly and air-dry overnight.
Use Crayola School Glue to glue scoops in place on the bar graph. Air-dry the graph flat.
With markers, mark the numbers of votes along the left side of the graph, starting at the bottom and going up. Make sure each scoop lines up with a number. Add a key indicating how many scoops equal one vote for an ice cream flavor.
What does your graph show? Explain it to your classmates. Which flavor received the most votes? The least? Did any flavors receive the same number of votes? How many more votes did the most popular receive than the least popular flavor? How many people voted altogether? Present your findings to the class.
