This student centered NGSS aligned graphing lesson is fun and interactive! My class gave it a thumbs up! It was created specifically for Middle School grades 6-8 NGSS Practice 4: Analyzing and Interpreting Data.
These graphing stations are a great way to get students to interact with different forms of data. The graphing stations include:
* A Graphing Notes Printable - The notes explain the different types of graphs and how they are most commonly used. This is a great resource for students to refer to as they work through the station activities.
* 8 Graphing Stations- Each station hones a different skill from interpreting bar graphs, line graphs, charts and tables to creating graphs from tables and making inferences from the data.
* Printable Station Placards
* Student Graphic Organizer - Students answer questions based on graphs, create line, bar and circle graphs, and create data tables from different sources.
* An answer key!
Each station should take approximately 15 minutes depending on the level of experience of graphing.
