Un-BEE-lievable Statistical Landmarks

My classroom has been working on statistical landmarks.  We sing silly sayings to help us remember the different statistical landmarks.

Maximum is the biggest!
(said in in a deep voice making muscles)

Minimum is the smallest!
(said in a squeaky high pitched voice showing a small amount with your fingers)

Range is the maximum minus the minimum!
(with motions that lean to the left with your hand extended for maximum, and with motions that lean to the right with your hand extended for the minimum)

Mode is mode, mode, most often!
(said in a cheerleading voice like hip, hip hooray- also put your arm / hand in the air for each mode, mode, most often cheer)

Median is the middle!
(clap your hands together in front of you to represent the middle)
I created an Un-BEE-lievable Statistical Landmark Center.  Here are a few previews of the product, and my kids working hard during this center.  There are 12 task cards and student recording sheets.  $3.50
