You're not alone if your students struggle with understanding graphs, charts, and tables. It's a skill that takes an enormous amount of practice. This resource will help students build a strong foundation in analyzing data and creating their own data visualizations.

Included in every lesson:

  • Part 1 - Phenomenon: an interesting situation is presented and students brain-storm what areas of science could be studied about it, as well as what kind of data scientists could collect from the scenario.
  • Part 2 - Visual Data: students are shown a graph, table, or chart and find the connection between it and the previous phenomenon. Then they identify the critical elements, either on a whiteboard, a hand-out, or as an interactive experience using the data labels provided and their INB's.
  • Part 3 - Question and Answer: students generate questions about the visual data and then answer each others’ questions
  • Part 4 - New Forms: Students come up with different forms that could be used to display the same data and ideas.
  • Part 5 - Student-generated Graph: students are given a new set of data relating to the phenomenon and will create their own graph, chart, or table.
  • Answer keys and multiple formats for displaying data on the board or in interactive notebooks are included.

Multiple Uses:

Each topic is broken into five parts that can each be completed throughout the week as a 5-10 minute warm-up before class starts. Or, the lesson could also be used as a 40-45 minute activity where all five parts are completed on the same day.
