Geometry meets data in this fun lesson! Students will build a design using pattern blocks and then graph the number of each shape used. This scaffolded EL lesson can be used alone or alongside **Graphing Colored Counters.**
Students will be able to represent and interpret data using a bar graph.
Students will be able to describe the steps to show and interpret data on a bar graph, using visual and partner support.
Project the Bar Graphs: Favorite Color worksheet, and tell students that today they will be collecting data, which is information that can be used to learn about something.
Write the question, "What is your favorite color?" on the board.
Review the choices on the worksheet, and have students turn a talk to a partner to answer the question using the sentence frame, "My favorite color is ________." If their favorite color is not included on the graph, instruct them to choose their favorite of the available choices.
