This is a set of 12 activities for creating graphs from data sets. For each data set, students will make either a picture or bar graph that shows the data, then answer questions about the data. An answer key is included for every set of data, making this easy to grade!
Many of the data sets are themed, making them fun to spread out throughout the year (candy corn, turkeys, candy canes, snowfall records, Valentine's Day cards, 4-leaf clovers, and tulip planting), and the rest are neutral enough to be used at any time of the year.
These can be used as assessments, skill practice, or as a year-long math center.
Look at the preview file to get a peek at one of the data sets (candy corn) and the accompanying bar graph and questions!
