Students will be able to interpret and explain data in bar graphs using key vocabulary and discussion supports.
Have students take out their whiteboards and whiteboard markers and meet in a common place in the classroom.
Write the word graph on the board and ask students to quickly sketch a graph on their whiteboards. Observe students' drawings, and point out the different types of graphs that you see. If possible, share a student example of a bar graph.
Explain to students that they will be looking at the data found in bar graphs today.
