"Across Crocodile Lake"

Benchmark!

• 5b:

• Compare data and interpret quantities represented on tables and graphs, including line graphs, stem-and-leaf plots, histograms, and box-and-whisker plots to make predictions, and solve problems based on the information. (DOK 2)

Essential Questions

Is it possible to predict something before you know all of the elements?

You have already learned about several different graphs and plots!! Today we are going to put them to good use!!

Stem-and-Leaf Plots

Line Graphs

Histograms

Box-and-Whisker Plots

Now you will use these tables and graphs to make predictions and solve problems

Guess What Happened Today!

• Our school parking lot has been magically transformed into a large lake full of Crocodiles!

Our Journey

• Our journey today is going to be hard and adventurous. Put on your sailing hats and get busy!

• Your “team” is going to devise a plan to get across this crocodile infested lake!

THERE IS ONE PROBLEM:

You can only use THREE sheets of Newspaper!!

Directions!!!

• The only way to cross the lake is by staying ON the newspaper.

• The newspaper is your paper boat.

• Any team member that steps off of the boat will be grabbed my a crocodile and will be out of the game.

• The goal is to get as many team members across the lake alive as possible.

Cont….

• If your team tears any piece of the newspaper, the boat will sink and the whole team will wind up in the croc-infested water!

• Very strenuous and hard!

Predict….

• Each group needs to predict several things:

• How many of the team members do you think will make it across the lake alive?

• How long will it take your team to cross the lake?

• Will your team tear the newspaper?

• Will your second trip across the lake be better times?

• WRITE THESE DOWN AND KEEP!

Strategy:

• Your team will be allowed 10 minutes to devise a strategy to make it across the lake.

• So.. Let’s get into our teams:

Team 1 (Yellow)

• Amy

• Ashley

• Donna

• Mary N.

• Eddie

• Caleb

Team 2 (Red)

• Michael

• Ama

• Chenata

• Richard

• Josie

Team 3 (Blue)

• China

• Mary P.

• Charlotte

• Linda

• Neomi

Materials

• 3 pieces of Newspaper per group

• Wipe- Off board

• Stop Watch

• Graphing Paper

One Last Note:

• Make sure to use your wipe off board to keep your data when you cross the lake. Both times! You need to make sure we know:

• How long it took

• Who fell off, if anyone

• Your strategy, and if it changed the 2nd time

YOU HAVE 10 MINUTES!!

-Devise a Plan

Welcome Back!

• So, we all survived the croc-infested lake… lets put all of our classroom data on the board for all to see.

What To Do:

• Each group will choose any of the four graphs we have discussed and use your data to create two graphs.

• Graph 1- First trips across the lake

• Graph 2- Second trips across the lake

Did you have fun???
