This resource was created to help students learn to choose the correct graph type and practice graphing.

This skill is an essential prerequisite for the NGSS Science and Engineering Practice Analyzing and Interpreting Data. In 6-8 grade students should be able to:

  • Represent data in tables and/or various graphic displays (bar graphs, pictographs an/or pie charts) to reveal patterns that indicate relationships.

This Resource Includes:

  • 2 pages of detailed instructions and examples in color and in black and white
  • A sample problem to complete during whole group instruction
  • 4 practice problems
  • Key

This resource is a pdf and is not editable. ***This product was updated on 11/11/2019 based on customer feedback. The following changes were made:

  • Page numbers added
  • Removed circle for pie chart from any question that didn't need it to give students more space.
  • Darkened the graph lines to improve photocopies


  • Lindsey - "Perfect for Middle School students that need to brush up on their graphing!"
  • Erin - "So thankful for quality resources. Perfect to have prepped for last-minute sub plans!"
  • Shannon - "Great add-on for my two sub days when I needed to keep everyone busy! Always a good skill to practice and directions were clear enough for most of my students :) "

Use variables to represent two quantities in a real-world problem that change in relationship to one another; write an equation to express one quantity, thought of as the dependent variable, in terms of the other quantity, thought of as the independent variable. Analyze the relationship between the dependent and independent variables using graphs and tables, and relate these to the equation. For example, in a problem involving motion at constant speed, list and graph ordered pairs of distances and times, and write the equation 𝘥 = 65𝘵 to represent the relationship between distance and time.
