Product Description

Activity includes...

  • Discussion/reflection questions to introduce students to bar graphs and guide them through comparing/contrasting bar graphs and pictographs.
  • "Coin Grab" activity: students reach into a bag of coins and create a tally chart and bar graph based on the spread of different coins in their handful. They then answer analysis questions to draw conclusions about the data set based on their chart/graph.
  • Graph Analysis activity: students analyze a given set of data, create a bar graph based on the chart, and answer analysis questions to draw conclusions about the data set.

**The packet can be printed off and given to students-- it walks through the activities step-by-step! The teacher will need to provide graph paper and real coins or coin manipulatives.

**I used this in a 2nd grade general education classroom as a "we do" during guided whole group instruction, and with gifted and talented first grade students. It could also stand alone as a math center or seat-work if students have some background knowledge about bar graphs and tally charts! The second activity requires students to compare two data sets, so teachers can differentiate by assigning the second graph analysis to high-ability learners, and assigning the "Coin Grab" activity to students who still need to master the basics of bar graphs.
