Looking for a fun, differentiated way to teach your students about graphs - specifically line plots? Need something to capture their interest this winter? How about penguins!
This special math freebie is super flexible - it can be used in 2nd grade all the way through 5th Grade. Super easy to differentiate for different ability levels, too!
The teacher completely controls what kinds of numbers are used for the line plot: whole numbers only, whole numbers and fractions, fractions only.
The heights and weights of 17 different species of penguins are the data. Students create line plots based on the measurements the teacher provides. The research about the range of heights and weights of the species of penguins is already done for the teacher, too!
Students will learn how to create line plots using data about penguins.
You could then use these line plots to have students answer questions involving the operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division.)
Use this freebie as a starting point for all kinds of math lessons, and lessons about penguins, too! :)
