### PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Line plots are a key part of many different sets of math standards for intermediate grades—but many textbooks give very limited exposure to them. This resource is designed to get students interpreting line plots, making line plots, collecting data, and more!

My students had SO much fun with the different activities and really were able to show their math thinking on the practice pages. We had tons of great math talk, and the opportunities for students to really “study” the graphs really helped them construct meaning—not merely fill in the blanks.

This resource is divided into FOUR main sections:

1. “Interpreting Line Plots
This section has 5 different reproducible line plots with questions to help the students think deeply about the data. Each one also has a place for students to generate their OWN questions about the graph—great for class discussions or partner and small group work.

2. “Hands On Line Plots”
This section has 5 hands on “explorations” where students generate data and create class line plots that they then work to study and analyze. Suggestions for use are included as are both customary and metric versions where appropriate.

3. “Making Line Plots”
In this section, students are given 5 different sets of data to use to “plot”—many of which use fractions. Gridded and “open” line plot pages are included so students can either use a preplanned scale or you can work as a class or in small groups to create your own scales that match the data. Question pages are also included to do additional data analysis once the line plots are created.

4. “Assessing Line Plots”
Although any of the other pages could certainly be used as assessments (and these can be used as practice pages), it’s sometimes nice to have a place for students to work independently to “show what they know”. I have included 5 different assessments that ask questions and present data in different ways.

I hope you find it a fun, rigorous, and meaningful way to get your students truly thinking about data and line plots! Selected answers included where applicable. Page count is approximate. Actual document has far more but some are different versions of certain pages.
