This is an activity that I have run with low end ability maths students. It consolidates understanding of data by asking them to draw a pie and bar chart as well as find the three averages. Learners need a small pack of multi-coloured sweets such as mini m&ms or smarties. They fill in a table of how many in each colour then turn this into charts. They also collect in the totals from everyone and calculate the average number of sweets. There's a few interpretation questions too.
