This is a 15-20 minute activity to get students involved in creating a double bar graph, calculating the difference and average amount of rainfall in Rio de Janeiro and Bangkok, as well as interpreting data presented in a table. This activity is from my Earth Day Unit

Students can work individually or with a partner.
Represent and interpret data.
Draw a picture graph and a bar graph (with single-unit scale) to represent a data set with up to four categories. Solve simple put together, take-apart, and compare problems using information presented in a bar graph.
