High Interest@home: Skittles Probability Challenge

May 23, 2020

We were really excited to bring our Skittles Probability activity to High Interest Days this semester. Unfortunately, we weren't able to do this in person before schools were closed.

Rather than totally give up though, we decided to create an @home version of the activity!

(An enthusiastic Skittles-loving assistant made this easy and fun too)

YOU can do this activity at home in these easy steps:

  1. Buy a bag of Skittles (Sharing or Grab N Go size works great!)
  2. Download this two page worksheet
  3. Clear off some table space
  4. Watch the Skittles Probability Challenge: Part 1 video
  5. Count those Skittles
  6. Watch the Skittles Probability Challenge: Part 2 video
  7. Email us your results!

Please share this with anyone who loves Skittles, or probability, or maybe even just needs something to keep their kids occupied for 30 minutes?
