Probability Spinners- Suggestions for Use
You could use these with or without the spinners - print and laminate as a 4-to-a-page sheet or cut out for separate grids.
For each spinner, children predict results and test their predictions - use the record sheet for children to make a graph or tally where the spinner lands for 10 spins - share the results - eg. 'The spinner landed on red 6 times out of 10, yellow 4 times out of 10'
Use the blank spinners for children to make their own according toyour instructions - for example - 'Make a spinner where I am most likely to spin a red', 'Make a spinner where I am least likely to spin a blue' etc..
Sort the spinners into groups according the certain criteria - eg most likely to spin a red / least likely to spin a yellow.
Incorporate 'yes / no' question cards as Marnie shows below....
