This is a project based learning unit for third grade math. Students will create a poll question to ask their classmates in order to gather data. Then, students will use their data to create a picture graph and bar graph. Students will interpret their data and practice their written expression in context. They will then need to determine area using multiplication strategies.
3.MD.B.3 Draw a scaled picture graph and a scaled bar graph to represent a data set with several categories.
3.MD.C.6 Measure areas by counting unit squares (square cm, square m, square in, square ft, and improvised units).
