Looking for a fun and foolproof way to teach elementary kids how to create graphs and how to pick the appropriate type of graph? Tired of figuring out how to make it easier for elementary kids to find the files they need? Look no further!
This product was written for both the regular classroom teacher as well as the technology specialist or computer lab teacher. There are three activities where students collect different types of weather data from their home town and international cities and produce a line, bar, and circle graph.
Links to short videos modeling the process for obtaining the data from a website and creating graphs are linked in an interactive pdf presentation. All you need to do is to provide each student or small group with a data collection sheet, and the interactive presentation and off they go! Links to the spreadsheets and "How To" videos are linked in the presentation so there's no fumbling around trying to find files! Many students will be able to complete all three activities with little or no assistance.
