Teach students to look up, record, and do something useful with information on the internet. Here is a worksheet for students to use the internet to find information on five different topics. Using the information, the students then make bar graphs. The graphs can be made on the computer using your favorite graphing program or by hand. Also, the five graphs can be done by each student individually or by a group of five students making one graph each. All the websites needed and a recording sheet are given.
The topics for these graphs come from Theme 2 of the 5th grade HM reading series. They can be made as you read teh different stories or done at anytime when you are studying graphs. The topics are: Olympic Reocrds, Mountain Peeks, Sound, Pitching, and Weight on other Planets.
