Graphing and food are always a good idea. You learn, and you get to have a little treat too! I found little "trick-or-treat sized" packages of Boo-Mallows (Halloween shaped marshmallows) that were perfect for this activity! The kids first sorted the shapes and placed them on their graphs. After they figured out how many they had of each shape, they removed the Boo-Mallows and colored in the correct number of spaces on the graph. To extend the learning, I had the kids write the total number of Boo-Mallows they had along with the shapes that appeared the most and least on their graphs.
