All students should be able to:                      1. Learn basic colors2. Sort according to colors3. Count 1 through 10Materials Needed:For a class of thirty students you will need the following:      30 small bags of M&MS30 coffee filters30 papers with colors red, blue, orange, brown, yellow, and green written in    squares. Strategy:              Have students guess how many M&M'S are in the bag.              Open bag of candy and put candy into coffee filter.              Sort all M&M's into sets by colors using the color sheet.              Name each color and count each set.               Once activity is finish have students put M&M's                back into their coffee filters.              Ask students to put two M&M in their mouth.              Have students count how many are left.              Eat two more.  How many M&M'S do you have left? Performance Assessment:Each student will be orally assessed on colors, sorting, and counting 1-10. Conclusions:The students should be able to name various colors.  Sort according to colors and count 1-10.  References:Primary Bears, Book 1- 1987 AIMS Education Foundation```
