Students will practice measuring their heights using yard sticks or measuring tape. They will then share their data with classmates to create a stem and leaf plot. They will then find the average height of boys and average height of girls to create a bar graph. Questions to help them analyze the data are included as well as extra questions based on a teacher-created stem and leaf plot.
This can be used after the graphing and statistics unit is taught to 5th graders to reinforce the skills or to assess the newly gained knowledge.
