Graphing - Part 2

The weather is CRAZY here.  It was 60 degrees and, according to the weather report, it's supposed to drop down to the 20s and we will be waking up to snow... all in a matter of 24 hours!  

Anywho... do you like teaching graphing? 

We've been having lots of fun graphing in Math this week.  We used our survey cards a couple of times.  After surveying their friends, they created bar graphs to organize their data.  Here are a couple of pictures of their graphs.  Nothin' fancy...

We also started with picture graphs, too.  After talking about how a picture graph is special, we made our own in class.  

After collecting data, we started interpreting it.  The questions like "How many more people like elephants than lions?" still confuse the kids so we still have some graphing work to do.

We also did some fun subject/predicate work in class today!  I will be posting about it tomorrow!  :) 

Have a great night!
