This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 13, Unit 8, Grade 6. This activity introduces students to the term median. They learn that the median describes the middle value in an ordered list of data, and that it can capture what we consider typical for the data in some cases. Students learn about the median through a kinesthetic activity. They line up in order of the number of letters in their name.
