Stick Tallying - Outdoor Tally Charts

This is a fun and practical outdoor game to teach students how to use tally charts as part of your data handling topic. This game is best done in pairs or small groups. For this game each player will need 20 small sticks and each group will need a set of playing cards (if you use the third page of playing cards students will need 30 sticks each).

Get them to place the cards in a pile face down and turn over one at a time. Each time they turn a card they need to create the correct tally using their sticks. The first player to create the correct tally gets a point.

Equipment needed:

- 20 Sticks Per Player

- Playing Cards

- Score Sheet
