# A Range of Probabilities

Description

This worksheet helps students understand how probability can be visualised on a continuum between 0 (impossible) and 1(certain). This is an important aspect of the Year 5 and 6 curriculum and may be difficult for students to grasp.
This sheet is part of a larger unit plan written to move students from describing chance through words, to calculating probability with numbers through a presentation, rotation games, and worksheets.

Suitable for
• Relief Teachers
• Parents
Lesson Structure
• Individual Activity
• Rotations / Group Work
