PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Engage your students while making connections to literature in this fun activity! Students can practice making stem-and-leaf plots, box-and-whisker plots and/or histograms using the lengths of the first 30 sentences in popular novels.

Two sets of 3 worksheets are given (one for each type of display):

1. Students are given the number of words in the first 30 sentences of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. They can then make a stem-and-leaf plot, a box-and-whisker plot, and a histogram. (The worksheets are independent of one another, in case you don't teach one of the types of displays).
2. Students use their own novels, with which they count and record the number of words in the first 30 sentences. They can then make a stem-and-leaf plot, a box-and-whisker plot, and a histogram with their new data.

Students can either compare their graphs to Alice's Adventure's in Wonderland, or to other students' novels.

Finally, sets of similar data for 4 popular novels (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, The Hunger Games, The Hobbit, and The Lightning Thief) are included. These can be used for an assessment or for extra practice or homework.

Answer keys are included.
