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
The hens are laying eggs faster than Farmer Brown can catch them! Kids help the farmer collect eggs by catching them in this fast-paced drop game. Next, kids must sort the eggs into categories then make bar graphs to represent them. These three different steps help kids learn to collect, sort, and present this "egg-cellent" data in a game they'll want to play time and time again.
Students will learn how to collect and organize data thanks to this interesting exercise from Education.com.
This engaging exercise will introduce students to probability and statistics in a way that excites them to continue learning.
It's raining...fish! Kids use a pelican to catch as many fish as possible in this fast-moving data and graphing game. Once players collect fish, they must sort and graph their haul—practicing important categorizing and bar graph skills. Catching the dropping fish helps kids hone important hand-eye coordination, and adds a whole lot of fun to the follow-up sorting and graphing.
In this exercise, students will practice interpreting scaled picture graphs.
This exercise will clarify just how scaled bar graphs represent data found in math problems.
This exercise will introduce students to the concept of taking measurements and graphing the data.
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.
Students will be able to translate word problems into various types of graphs after completing this exercise.
