Comparing Jellybeans With A Venn Diagram
If you’re looking for another jellybean activity, try this quick and easy candy Venn diagram.
I got the paper plate Venn diagram idea from Deanna Johnston at her cute “Primary Punch” blog and liked it so much I pinned it months ago.

I thought I’d try it out for a jellybean and conversational heart comparison - contrast, as I use candy a lot in the classroom, for all sorts of activities and math centers.
Candy is pretty unforgettable for children, so you’ll have no problem having them remember your past activities.
After I got it done, I was so pleased with the results, that I whipped a Venn diagram off for comparing the other candy, that I doled out during the other holidays: candy corn from October and peppermint candy canes in December.
This turned into a 15-page packet entitled Venn Candy! You can either use paper plates and have students cut and glue the clipart and headers, or use the normal Venn diagram templates.
I’ve made some for comparing each type of candy with each other as well as provided a blankVenn diagram template for you to dream up whatever else inspires you!
