As a review before our test on data and graphs, I had my students put together a timeline flippable with details about the 7 different types of graphs that we had learned about and been using. Within each flippable the students attached the pre-typed definition to go along with the flippable and then wrote examples of when to use each type of graph.
To review further, I split the students into small groups and gave them each a set of the Types of Graphs Memory Game. This way they had to match the type of graph to a picture of the graph as well as the definition of a graph. Throughout the entire process students are reading and re-reading the material and further retaining what each graph is used for.
-Types of Graphs Flippables (Pictograph, Tally Chart, Table, Frequency Table, Bar Graph, Line Graph and Circle Graph)
-Types of Graph Memory Game (21 cards- title, picture and definition for each)
This is a great review for higher grades as well to remember when and how to use each type of graph. Could extend it to have students create each type of graph inside with their own data.
