No Fair!
By Caren Holtzman
You will need:
A brown paper bag crayons: red, blue
4 red cubes the graph sheet
4 blue cubes
Read the story and think about the different games David and Kristy played. Now try this.
Game 1:
First put 3 RED and 3 BLUE cubes into the paper bag, close the top, and jiggle them to mix them up.
Without looking, reach inside and pull out a cube. Use a crayon to color in one of the squares on the graph to show which cube you got.
Put the cube back into the bag, close the bag, jiggle, and without looking reach inside and pull out another cube. Use a crayon to color in one of the squares on the graph to show which cube you got.
Do this ten times.
How many times did you get red? ________________
How many times did you get blue? ________________
Turn the paper over and try something different
Game 2:
Now put 4 RED and 2 BLUE cubes into the paper bag, close the top, and jiggle them to mix them up.
Without looking, reach inside and pull out a cube. Use a crayon to color in one of the squares on the graph to show which cube you got.
Put the cube back into the bag, close the bag, jiggle, and without looking reach inside and pull out another cube. Use a crayon to color in one of the squares on the graph to show which cube you got.
Do this ten times.
How many times did you get red? ________________
How many times did you get blue? ________________
Try both games three times each. When you get done, look at your graphs. If you could win a million dollars by pulling out a RED cube, which game would you play?
