Am i turning red?
Task 1 - Estimate the number of swedish fish in the bag
What is an estimate that is too high? Too low?
Task 2 - The reveal!
How many Swedish Fish are there in the package? How did you count?
Are you surprised?
By how much was your estimate off?
What are the groups of Swedish Fish piled into? Why do you think they are grouped like that?
How many servings of Swedish Fish do you think are in the bag? Why?
Task 3 - The label
Given the label, how many Swedish Fish would you expect in the bag?
Are you mad about how many were given? Why?
Above is the nutrition label listed on the website, which gives the weight of one Swedish Fish. What do you notice/wonder about the two labels?
Ss should note that the calories (140cal.) are the same for both, as is the weight of the serving size, but the number of pieces differs on the label. What does this mean? Are the pieces bigger or smaller in our package? How do you know?
Also, given the difference in serving size numbers are you STILL mad? Why?
If Ms. M paid $5 for this bag of Swedish Fish, how much was she ripped off by? Why?
