Opening Weekend - Avengers: Endgame





Can you tell from its opening weekend how much the new movie, Avengers: Endgame, might earn in theaters?  This activity can be used anytime and is especially timely when there is a new blockbuster movie released.  We've left blank spaces in our chart for students to add their favorites or for future movies. The data for this activity can be found at: boxofficemojo.com.  Just click on any movie and look for this info.

Students compare "Opening Weekend" amounts to "Total Lifetime Gross (Domestic)" data to try to  predict how much money the new Avengers movie (which just posted earning $350,000,000 in its opening weekend in the U.S.) will make at theaters. This task is accessible for any student who can plot points on a grid. It could be used for students as young as 4th graders.  Older students can create a line of best fit and equation to model the data and make predictions.  By plotting and analyzing the data students decide if they can, in fact, predict the future.

For Adventurer members we have an editable Word docx, an Excel data sheet with charts, and solutions
