### Description

**Learning to Graph & Analyze Data II:**

**How does the number of heron nesting pairs change from year to year?**

This is lesson 2 of a set of 5 instructional worksheets that scaffold the skills of graphing and data analysis while building students’ background knowledge. Rather than graphing meaningless data, your students will graph and analyze scientifically meaningful data based on real-world research on wild birds.

**Skills and content for Learning to Graph & Analyze Data II**:

1. Scaffolding for making a double-bar graph.

2. Guidance for choosing intervals and labeling axes.

3. Data analysis that requires using data as evidence to support conclusions.

Instruction is built into the worksheet – Based on your students’ experience with graphing, analysis and understanding variables you can determine whether they can work independently or need direct instruction for this activity.

Continue to teach graphing, data analysis and experimental design, with increasing challenge, by getting all 5 mini-lessons (bundled packet):

**1. Learning to Graph & Analyze Data I**

When do Dark-Eyed Juncos Visit Bird Feeders?

**2. Learning to Graph & Analyze Data II**

How does the number of nesting pairs change from year to year?

**3. Practice Graphing & Analyzing Data I**

Do woodpeckers prefer seeds or suet?

**4. Practice Graphing & Analyzing Data II**

To which country are Ruby-throated hummingbirds most likely to migrate?

**5. Assessment: Graphing & Analyzing Data**

How far might a Peregrine falcon migrate?

Skills and Content:

1. Leveled scaffolding in making bar and line graphs, such as how to choose intervals, labeling axes and writing graph titles.

2. Data analysis that requires using data as evidence to support conclusions.

3. Mathematical analysis including calculating averages, speed and percentages.

4. Experimental design analysis such as determining independent and dependent variables, variables held constant and forming research questions.

5. Graphing and analysis of data based on actual scientific studies on bird ecology and behavior.
