Collecting and graphing data can be a fantastic tool for getting to know your students and for your students to get to know one another! In this lesson, students will poll their classmates to gather data and then graph the results!
Let’s Find Out! Answering Questions by Collecting and Organizing Data
Your students will practice data collection and graphing while learning more about each other. Your data scientists will craft a survey question, collect data from the class, and then create a bar graph to represent their findings.
Comparison is one of the most crucial math skills second graders learn, because it can be applied to so many other disciplines across the elementary school curriculum. In this measurement and data lesson, kids will work on object comparison and graphing. The exercises ask kids to list objects in size order, estimate length, note differences in length, and make bar graphs.
Understanding data and graphs is a critical skill that we use on a regular basis to read news articles, reports and other media to interpret information. In this unit, students investigate data collection, data organization and visual representation in different kinds of graphics (i.e. line plots, pie charts). Learners also apply concepts of probability and statistics to analyze data.
Measurement and data in first grade includes such important concepts as comparing the length and weight of two objects using a third object. This guided lesson, designed by curriculum experts, takes students on an exploration of these measurement and data concepts. Once through with the lesson, kids can gain extra practice with measurement and data with the accompanying worksheets.
