What's better? A pie chart or bar graph
This activity will get students engaged in representing real data while creating bar graphs and pie charts.
The PDF has a space for collecting data. This could be in the form of a class survey, research, or different groups could collect data on their own questions. Then, students turn the data into a bar graph and into a pie chart, which require working with percents and fractions. In the end, students can decide which representation shows the data better.
This simple format is great for all grade levels. Early grades can practice simple forms of bar graphs and pie charts. I also use this activity in my high school classes to practice angle measurements, as they create precise pie charts based on percents!
