Making an Excel Spreadsheet Using M&M’s!

Microsoft Excel was introduced to fifth grade students in the computer lab with the help of M&M candy. Students first grouped and counted colors of M&M’s.  Using this information,  they created a  simple Excel spreadsheet which included a pie chart. Students also formatted the data points to make each pie chart section match the colors of M&M’s.  Fifth graders were then able to eat their data!
