Product Description
Using measurements generated by your students to build scatter plots, stem & leaf plots, and histograms is a terrific way to bring data to life. With more than a dozen activities and extensions, this is a resource that keeps on giving - from the initial measurements of height, wingspans, and footprints, to the final student observations and discussions.

These activities work well for a back-to-school kickoff and can be used as a unit of study with stations or as stand-alone centers, throughout the year.

The nice thing about this unit is that you can start off with just the measurement part and pick up the other activities as they fit in your schedule.

Included is a set of height, wingspan and footprint data from my 6th grade class (Mrs. K's Class) to use. Your students will be eager to look at the different comparisons they can make between the two classrooms, as well as within their own group.
