I Spy Snowman Number Activity Pages

Posted by admin on

I Spy Snowman Numbers invites children to search for snowman-shaped numbers. While this is an I Spy activity, it is really more than that. It can be used to introduce children to data-gathering. Children gather, represent, and interpret the information (snowman numbers). Next children will figure out how many of each number is displayed. Finally, they will represent it with tally marks or numerals.

Before starting the activity introduce your children to the words data, gather, and represent mean. It will help them break out each of the steps they will be doing in this activity.

Exploring the Vocabulary Words

Data-  It can be facts, observations, numbers, or measurements that can be collected and looked over.

Gather- Bringing together or collecting information or data.

Represent- A sign, symbol, or number that describes something.

Building Background

Anno’s Flea Market features items in groups or categories. Children will need to figure out just how they were sorted.

Seven Blind Mice explores how data gathering can go wrong. Six of the mice share only their perspective and think they know what an object is. The seventh mouse gives them the whole picture.

Tiger Math: Learning to Graph from a Baby Tiger shares how data is gathered by zoo workers as they take care of a young tiger.

Second, if you don’t have Acrobat Reader you will need to download it. The algorithm page is an Acrobat Reader PDF file.

Third, you must go to your download file and open the page.  You may be asked if you want the file to open right after downloading it. You won’t have to hunt for it in your download file if you are.

  • Going over the data-gathering terms before you start will queue children in on all they are doing when they work on this sheet.
  • Next, children will need to count how many of each number appears on the page. You may want to have them color or cross out a number as they are counting.
  • Then have the children go back to double-check their counting. It is easy to miss a number!
  • Once they are sure they have the correct data for each number have them record it.
