This is a fun graphing activity that gives your students an opportunity to collect their own data and showcase their results in a bar graph. Students personalize their graphs with a silly moustache photo!
Please visit my blog to see how I utilized this activity in my classroom: http://mrsliretteslearningdetectives.blogspot.com/2012/03/i-moustache-you-question-free-graphing.html
This is absolutely adorable! We are doing graphing this week, and Friday we are wrapping up with a survey. *THIS* is now going to be our survey activity! How completely adorable! Thank you SO much!

I think this is a great way to add a pinch of silly/ fun to a math block. In BC we have a period of time called Movember (November) where men are encouraged to grow a moustache to support cancer. I think I shall use this then. Many thanks
I used this at the end of the year in third grade as a fun activity.. the kids loved it and I am glad they got some extra practice graphing. I adapted it so the kids had to make a key and graph accordingly. Ie. each square = 3 votes! The kids and the parents loved the pictures... they make me giggle!
Thank you for a great idea for graphing. I am planning on tweaking your lesson plan for each grade I teach in the computer lab. E.g. 5th grade will be a lesson on using Excel ... They are still young enough to appreciate the play on words, but sophisticated enough to benefit from the higher level thinking of Excel.
This is too cute, however when I tried to download/save it asks for a password. Am I doing something wrong? I can print it but I would like to save to my computer files. Is that possible? I love this & want to use it for the end of the year. Thanks for sharing!!
I'm not sure why you are not able to save it. :( It is a secured file and is password protected if you which to make changes to the file (not to save or print it!). If you e-mail me at :mary.lirette(at)yahoo(dot)com I would be more than happy to send you an image file to save. Sorry for the inconvenience...you have me stumped!
What a fun way to collect and present data! I love that that kids will be doing a tally chart AND a bar graph... and the parents will adore the photo (I'm sure this will end up in many scrapbooks!) Well done!

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:
Ok so I love your stuff! And it makes me so proud every time I click on it and find out it is yours, I am like "I know that person"! You are a great teacher and I have bought a ton of things from here, thank you so much.
I am trying to download this super cute graphing activity, but It will not let me save it to my desktop because you need a password and I dont have a printer to print it at home. Any help you could provide me would be great.
Hmm...they are password protected against copying the images only. I'm not sure why it says that when you are trying to save it. :( If you are able to download it, then it should already be saved on your computer. Maybe check your downloads folder? Or your desktop? (wherever your files go when you download them) You should be able to move the files and rename them from there. You can also contact customer support (at the bottom of the tpt page) and the tech crew might be able to give you more insight than I can. Let me know if it still doesn't work and we'll figure something out!

I LOVE your penguin game and the 'mustache you a question' and was so excited to save and print but for some reason it says they are both password protected :( Any idea of what I could be doing wrong?
Hello! Both of the activities are secured pdfs. That means you should not be able to lift the images, however, you should be able to print! Have you had problems with pdfs before? Please e-mail me at mary.lirette(at)yahoo(dot)com and I will try sending them to you as images. Sorry for the inconvenience!
