Draw a Birthday Bar Graph
Liven up a graphing exercise by helping your child graph data he's actually collected himself. He'll surprise teachers and classmates with a graphing lesson compiled from classmates' birthdays. Or, he can poll friends and family to make an at-home birthday chart. Either way, he'll be improving his graphing skills and ability to organize information. This activity makes a perfect back to school icebreaker, and who knows—he may even end up with some extra credit!
