Candy Heart Count

  1. You will need to bring in several bags of candy hearts for this activity.
  2. Have your students sort the candies by phrase (i.e. "Be Mine" "I Love You") and write down the phrases on this worksheet.
  3. They will need to come up with a total number for each phrase on the candies. There is a place on the worksheet for them to tally the candies. As an alternative, you may choose to tell them the phrases rather than having them sorting through the candy.
  4. After totaling each type, they will then come up with the percentage of the total number of candy hearts for each type (phrase).
