Measure 'n Plot is a fun, hands-on activity that can be used whole class or as a math center. Students are given many opportunities to practice measuring to the nearest centimeter using the 16 task cards provided. Once students have measured and recorded their measurements for each task card, they then record their data in a tally table. They use the tally table to construct a line plot showing the frequency of each item's measurement. Lastly, students analyze their line plots by answering questions provided.
How to Use:
1. Print, copy 1 set per group of students, and cut apart measuring task cards on pages 3-5. Laminate for durability (optional).
2. Print and copy pages 6, 8 and 10 for all students. Answer keys are provided on pages 7, 9, and 11.
3. Students first measure each item on the 16 different measuring task cards and record their measurements to the nearest centimeter in the table on page 7. The order in which students complete each task card does not matter. Next, they organize their collected data into a tally chart, also on page 7.
4. Students then use their recording sheet (page 7) to create a line plot displaying their data on page 9.
5. Lastly, students analyze their data by answering questions on page 10. Have fun!
