SUMMER OLYMPIC GAMES
*Note: this is basically the same unit as Winter Olympics: Graphing the Game (but adapted for the Summer Olympics)
A great way to enjoy the Olympic Games and work on reading and creating graphs! Included in this Olympic-themed unit is a bar graph, triple bar graph, pictograph and table. Students will need to represent and interpret data in relation to the Summer Olympic Games! A fun way to prepare for standardized tests.
Feel free to use these with your classes as you see fit! Here are a few ideas to help you get started!
•The Summer Olympic Games: Medal Count—Graph the medals each day during the Olympics. I provided two different graphs (one triple bar graph—graphing gold, silver, and bronze medals won by various countries, and one bar graph—graphing the total medal count for various countries). Use one or both!
•The Summer Olympics Through the Years—Give students the table, discuss, and have them answer the comprehension questions by using the information from the graph.
•Trampolining—Allow students a chance to use a pictograph to answer questions about this lesser-known sport.
