Students at General Mitchell School are entering a new unit on Data and Statistics.
- Students surveyed the 5th and 6th grade population on their favorite items (for example: ice cream, colors, or radio stations). With these statistics, students tallied up the data, created a frequency table, histogram, and double bar graph.
- The next activity included probability and combination of dice sums. Students determined the likelihood of each sum occurring over the duration of 50 dice rolls.
- The students then counted and calculated the frequency of colors appearing in bags of M&M's and Skittles. Students found fractions, decimals, and percents for each color. Discussion revolved around whether or not color choices are a random draw or purposely picked due to consumer demand! We will follow up our findings with a trip to the Jelly Belly Factory in Pleasant Prairie!
J.E. Jones is participating in a program with Time Warner Cable called Read to Feed.
For this program, each classroom receives a poster with blank food cans on it. After a student reads a book, a can is colored in. For every book read, Time Warner Cable will donate one can of food to an area food pantry.
This new educational reading program not only encourages children to read but it also helps ensure that Wisconsin families have food this holiday season. The program runs from November 12 through November 26.
An interest meeting for the 2010 Cudahy Junior Miss Program will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, December 7th at the Cudahy Public Library Ladish Room.
