Data 1

Learning how to represent numerical information is a key part of the third grade math curriculum. This lesson in data provides guided instruction designed by our team of curriculum experts and teachers to present this concept in an engaging way. Not only that, but helpful exercises help kids to see the practical applicaton of these skills in the real world.
This lesson includes 5 printable learning activities.

Bar Graphing with Eggs

The hens are laying eggs faster than Farmer Brown can catch them! In this “egg-cellent” data and graphing game, kids must first use a frying pan to quickly catch as many eggs as they can. They will then sort the colorful eggs into like categories and create bar graphs to represent their data. This farm-themed game is a fun way to engage third grade math students in the process of collecting and organizing data while practicing bar graphing with eggs.

Collecting and Organizing Data 1

Students will learn how to collect and organize data thanks to this interesting exercise from Education.com.

Picture Graphing with Fish

It’s raining fish! In this three-part data and graphing game, kids use a pelican to catch as many fish as possible as they fall from the sky. After the fish have been collected, they must sort their haul into like categories and use their data to correctly complete a scaled picture graph. Picture graphing with fish is a unique and entertaining way to engage third grade math students in the process of collecting and organizing data.

Scaled Picture Graphs

In this exercise, students will practice interpreting scaled picture graphs.

Scaled Bar Graphs

This exercise will clarify just how scaled bar graphs represent data found in math problems.

Measurement and Graphing 1

This exercise will introduce students to the concept of taking measurements and graphing the data.

Zap and Kreb: Graphing Word Problems

Zap and Kreb are collecting data about Earthlings, and they need to organize it for General Trog. In this silly math story, kids are swept up in this zany quest as two goofy aliens observe and record their findings on Earth. Readers must stop and choose graphs that match Zap and Kreb's findings, combining data questions with an engaging story—the perfect learning combination.

Word Problems and Graphing

Students will be able to translate word problems into various types of graphs after completing this exercise.
