In this probability unit plan, three lessons guide students through the use of probability vocabulary, displaying probability on a number line, writing probability as a fraction, and making predictions based on probability. The unit begins with students learning and applying new vocabulary to the book "Probably Pistachio" by Stuart J. Murphy. In lesson two students use dice, spinners, and real life events to write probability as fractions and make predictions based on these fractions, while still using the probability vocabulary. The third lesson includes another probability experiment and a summative assessment. All student worksheet are included with answer keys in PDF format.
