This graphing center is a year long center that focuses on sorting, estimating and graphing. It can be used in a variety of ways. It was originally designed as a three week rotation for math workshop that can be used all year long. Students use the same items and first estimate how many items and skip count to find the actual amount. Then the next week they sort the items three different ways. During the third week they choose one of the ways they sorted and create a bar graph or a pictograph.

These activities could be used in a 1st, 2nd or 3rd grade classroom and the graphing portions are CCSS aligned.

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Organize, represent, and interpret data with up to three categories; ask and answer questions about the total number of data points, how many in each category, and how many more or less are in one category than in another.
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.
Draw a scaled picture graph and a scaled bar graph to represent a data set with several categories. Solve one- and two-step “how many more” and “how many less” problems using information presented in scaled bar graphs. For example, draw a bar graph in which each square in the bar graph might represent 5 pets.
