Thanksgiving Count and Graph Worksheets
This I Spy worksheet pack is totally print and go which makes it perfect for busy preschool moms and teachers. They’re so simple to use, as well. Perfect for your holiday preschool activities.
Show students how to find and count the first image. Count all the pilgrim bears. Write the number in the box under the bear. Continue with the other five images.
When students have finished the I Spy portion, show them how to graph their results. Encourage your student to color one square for each image they found.
Once the graphing page is complete, ask questions to help your preschoolers compare and analyze the data on the graph. Which one had the most? The least? How many bears and cats are there all together? How man more owls were there than turkeys?
There are a variety of ways to use this count and graph activity. First, you can use it in a center by printing one copy of the graphing page and laminating it or slipping it in a dry erase pocket. Then, print out a graphing sheet for each student. Let them write the numbers on the I Spy page with dry erase marker. Then, they can color their graphing page to be turned in.
You could, however, also laminate the graphing page and let students use dry erase markers on it, as well. This is a great way to make the activity reusable for both group and individual use.
