Assessing Graphing & Analyzing Data: How far might a Peregrine falcon migrate?
I have created a set of 5 instructional worksheets (this is worksheet 5) that scaffold the skills of graphing and data analysis while building my students’ scientific background knowledge. Rather than graphing meaningless data about favorite colors and pets your students will graph and analyze scientifically meaningful data based on real-world research on wild birds.
Worksheet 5 can be used as an assessment for graphing and data analysis or as additional practice in doing the following:
1. Making a line graph; this includes prompts for choosing intervals, labeling axes and creating a graph title.
2. Analyzing data, including calculating average flight speed (with scaffolding).
