Lucky Charms Graphing and FREEBIE!

We usually use this activity as a station at our St. Patrick's day party...but it doesn't hurt for my kids to do it more than once this month!  I think we will use this on Thursday, when our high school volunteers come in!  
This activity is super fun and involves working on math and comprehension skills (and eating...which all my kids love!).  Each kid gets a pile of Lucky Charms on a napkin or paper plate.  They have to count out how many of each type of marshmallow they have.  Then, they fill in the graph to show many of each they counted.  Next, they answer some comprehension questions about their graphs.  And lastly, they get to eat their cereal.


  1. What a fun, fast, and easy little station/activity. Thanks for sharing :)

  2. Next year I will be teaching in an autism class. This year I am teaching students that are more mild to moderate, with emphasis on learning disabilities, although I have all kinds of students in my 3 rotations. We have 3 teachers and my focus is math and science. Science is easy to teach whole group, but math is hard since their skills are so varied, so most of it is individually based. But I have been thinking of doing a graphing unit for everyone and this is one that all my students can participate it and would love. Most of my students are boys and food activities of any kind gets their attention. You have such wonderful and creative ideas, and I am so grateful you share!

    1. Thanks for the nice compliment! I hope your students enjoy this graphing activity! My kids definitely love the food activities too!
