Cooperative Learning Activity
This activity pack includes 4 different bar graphs with 8 task cards for each graph. The task cards ask questions students need to use the graph to answer. This activity is intended to do with partners or teams. I used it with teams. Students pulled cards and answered questions in their math notebook and then shared their results. They checked, came to a consensus and then cheered. These bar graph activities work great with Kagan structures like Fan-and-pick or Showdown.
Also included is a blank graph with a tally chart filled out so students can use the data to create a bar graph. There is also a bar graph sheet that students can come up with their own survey, collect data and turn it into their own bar graph.
This activity is a great way to encourage math talk with peers!
