3rd grade - Mystery Number!

We were so happy to get a call this morning to help out our friends at Gattis Elementary School. They had a last minute cancellation for their Mystery Number Hangout- so Mrs. Galvan's Trailblazers stepped in!
What's a Mystery Number Hangout? Good question! It's basically playing 20 questions with another classroom to try to guess the number 1-100 that they've chosen. Each class takes turns guessing. For example, "Is your number even?" Our students had a blast!
Check out some pictures:

Mrs. Crooks' third grade class did a GREAT job using Google Sheets to create graphs using class data. Students collected data about a variety of subjects and then inputted it into a spreadsheet and created a graph. They labeled both the x and y axis and gave it a title.
Check out these great examples!
