Grade Levels: K-3

These family and homeschool activities are designed to complement the Basic Probability topic on BrainPOP Jr.


Discuss what is certain and impossible with your child. Then make a list of goals that you and your child will be certain to accomplish. Goals might include reading everyday, learning a new word each day, or learning a new skill. Post the goals in your home and refer to them when needed.

Spinning Spinner

Find a board game that uses a spinner. Together with your child, make your own spinner for the game. Model the same spinner, except change a few elements, such as colors or the size of the sections on the spinner. You can use a pin or a brad to fasten an arrow that spins. Then play the game together using the new spinner. How did the game change? Was it fair or unfair? Why?
