PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This pack was created to support and supplement your graphing unit. Although the title includes the word “April,” most of the centers are not seasonal and could be done year round. The only somewhat “seasonal” center is the “Favorite Color Bunnies” pictograph center.

It includes 8 different activities to give students practice reading, creating, and analyzing bar graphs, pictographs and line plot graphs. All bar graphs use a scale of 1 per the Common Core Standards. The pictographs use a scale of 2. The following activities are included:

Can-A-Thon Graphing- Students read a provided line plot graph and answer 6 questions. An additional challenge question card is included. Two answer sheets are included, one with the challenge question and one without. Clip art is included if the teacher chooses to make this line plot activity hands on.

Measuring Pencils Mania- This is two activities. In the first activity, students measure pictures of pencils to the nearest whole centimeter and record the result. In the second activity, students use the measurements of the pencil lengths to create a line plot graph. Two versions of the line plot sheet are included, one labeled with numbers and one that is blank. Then, students answer 6 questions. An additional challenge question card is included. Two answer sheets are included, one with the challenge question and one without.

A Little Bit of Yum- Students read a provided tally chart and bar graph and answer 6 questions. An additional challenge question card is included. Two answer sheets are included, one with the challenge question and one without.

Clip art is included if the teacher chooses to make this graphing activity hands on.
