Venn diagrams are a fun way to introduce or review the concept of compare and contrast.
Packet includes a comparison of the following candy: candy corn, peppermint candy canes, conversational hearts and jellybeans.
I like to use this candy for a variety of crafts, activities and math centers during the various holiday seasons. Use paper plates for your Venn diagrams, and have students cut and glue the appropriate words and clipart.
Introduce the concept with hoola-hoops and index cards, or use the templates provided and have students fill in the information with a partner.
