This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 1, Unit 8, Grade 7. In this activity, students play a game while collecting data. Bags of colored blocks are set up with different probabilities to win and students use random chance to collect points when the color of the block they choose matches the color written on the bag. In the discussion, students will use the data they have collected in three rounds of the game to make a decision about which bag might be most likely to produce a winning block. As an opening activity, this is meant to motivate students into thinking about likelihood of events.
