- Guess how many of each color, in each bag or in the whole batch

- Graph how many kids like each flavor (favorite or even any they like)
- Guess the flavors
- Pick a jelly bean out of bag to divide into (color) teams for an
- use a ruler to measure them
- how many would it take to line up 12" of jelly beans? 1 yard? 1 meter?
(line them up long ways or sideways!)
- how many jelly beans long is your arm? your hand?
- how many beans would it take to go around your waist (use a tape

- how many can you fit into a small box? Can someone else get a

- use a scale to weigh them

- are different colors the same weight?
- what do you find in nature that is this color? (as you hold up a jelly
bean) Or what FOOD is this color?
