This is a lesson for bar graphs and line graphs. I use it for 4th grade, but it could be adapted for 3rd-6th grades as well.
This lesson was designed according to the National Standards for teacher evaluation. I've had fabulous evaluation scores using this template.
The lesson itself is based off of TN state standards. It includes sections for: statement of the day's goal, agenda, set, vocabulary, activating prior knowledge, modeling, checks for understanding, practice, assessing centers/stations, and homework.
I prefer flipcharts over powerpoints. They are just so much more interactive! You can download your free personal version of ActivInspire from prometheanplanet.com in order to use this product! It is free and awesome!
You will need a BrainPop subscription or free trial to see the set video about graphs.
The homework assigments and guided practice pages may need to be adapted depending upon what type of curriculum you are using.
