Butterflies: butterfly life cycle: graphing activities: data and graphing
Integrate math into your butterflies science unit by graphing the butterfly life cycle! We do this each year while raising our butterflies and it's the perfect way to incorporate several key math skills.
Here's How It Works:
Students record the changes on their Observation Calendar then collect and organize their data on the Getting Ready to Graph page. Next, they transfer their data onto your class graphs with caterpillar, chrysalis, and butterfly cut-outs. Students compare and discuss their data with the Data Discussion Cards then apply their skills with the Read-A-Graph game.
Choose How You Use It:
Use either (or all) of the bar graphs, pictographs, tally tables or line plots. Includes all the chart parts, printables, observation calendar, assessment, and activity cards you need for students to graph and discuss the different stages of the butterfly life cycle. No time to make charts? No worries! I’ve included projectable, blank charts for 4 types of graphs with each activity-12 projectable graphs in all. I’ve even included title lettering for a spring bulletin board display.
Butterflies Graphing Activities includes:
-Observing the Changes calendar for data collection
-Getting Ready to Graph tally page
-Chart Parts to make 3 class graphs: Caterpillar to Chrysalis, Chrysalis to Butterfly, and How Many Times Did Your Caterpillar Molt?
-12 projectable, blank graphs in color: a bar graph, pictograph, tally table and line plot for each of the 3 graphing activities-Choose the type of graph you wish to use.
-Student response pages for all three graphs
-Data discussion cards for partner or small group discussion (color and blackline included)
-Read-A-Graph roam the room/task cards to apply skills or use to assess (color and blackline included)
-Bulletin board display title lettering
