What is probability?

Help K-5 students answer this essential question (and meet the Common Core State Standards) with the Teaching STEM lesson plans for this mentor text: A Very Improbable Story by Edward Einhorn.

Students will examine the essential question, “What is probability?” They will become familiar with probability by making predictions and then testing them. Each student will keep data about the predictions and look for patterns while using a spinner to see which color the arrow will land on. They will use vocabulary related to probability and write a number sentence to show their information.
