This assignment was proceeded by a class acitivty the day before. I showed my students a science video I found on youtube about how long the average human can hold their breath.

We all recorded how many seconds each of us could hold our breath and recorded the information.
The following day the students reviewed all the different types of graphs we had discussed throughout the unit: box and whisker plots, stem and leaf plots, frequency table, and a histogram. A few reflection questions conclude the activity.
