What educators are saying

Only used it for certain pieces as I teach 6th grade and we don't do scatterplots, but it was great practice, especially for dot plots!
I had my students work on this activity in partners after I had already taught the concept using rally coach and other kagan strategies.

This resource is part of my 5th Grade TEKS aligned Data & Graphs Bundle:

5th Grade TEKS Graphs & Data Bundle

This resource is designed to work seamlessly with these other resources included in the bundle:

Bar Graph Task Cards

TEKS Aligned Exit Slips: Data & Graphs 5.9A, 5.9B, 5.9C

TEKS Aligned Notebook Pages: Data & Graphs 5.9A, 5.9B, 5.9C

Stem-and-Leaf Plot: Hands on Cut & Paste Activity


Students will participate in a series of challenges, such as snapping for 10 seconds, or use survey questions to collect data and then use their peers' data to create graphs. Students will also answer one and multi-step questions about their dot plots, scatterplots, and stem-and-leaf plots. This is a perfect activity to use for introducing or reviewing 5th grade graphs.

I have included a page of questions that go with each graph. There is no key, because the answers depend upon your class data. There are at least two graphing activities for each type of graph. You may choose to do the first activity and question set as a guided lesson and then collect data for the second activity as a class and allow students to complete the second activity with a partner or independently.

Have fun collecting, organizing and displaying data about your class!
