Would You Rather? Playground Preferences

At recess would you rather join…

Mr. Green's class or Mrs. Smith's class. A graph of Mr. Green students' favorite playground activity shows 3 dots for kickball, 1 dot for swings, and 3 dots for sidewalk chalk. Each dot equals 4 students. A graph for Mrs. Smith's class's favorite playground activity shows 3 bars for kickball, 1 bar for swings, and 4 bars for sidewalk chalk. Each bar on the graph represents 3 students.

Use pictures, models, words, numbers or symbols to justify your choice. 

I would rather join … class because … 


Why might someone choose to join the other class?


Ask a friend or family member to choose between the two options. Did they make the same choice that you did? Why did they make their choice?
