Start this engaging data analysis study with a review of charts and graphs using the linked interactive presentation, which is both hilarious and comprehensive. Consider projecting it and having volunteers come up to complete various challenges. There are 27 statistics-related vocabulary terms you can use in a word sort (pictures of this are included for reference); put learners in small groups to determine how they would categorize these words. Next, groups use pre-collected data to create a pie chart and bar graph on the linked digital tools. Of course, you can easily have them do this by hand. There is an exit slip included here, as well. 
Give your math class a comprehensive understanding of bar graphs with this series of lessons. The resource is divided into three parts, and all of the accompanying worksheets are included. The class will study different bar graphs, analyze them, and record their answers to the questions provided. Your learners will be fluent in graphing in no time! 
Everything you need for a mini-unit on bar graphs is included in this lesson plan! It outlines three lessons and includes worksheets. Learners taste pretzels, shoot baskets (switching off hands), and grab candy, graphing results collaboratively. Entry activities are available for each day, and differentiation helps both learners having difficulty and those moving quickly. To use the linked online tool, you will need an updated version of Java.
Young math scholars collect data, make bar graphs, and use comparison subtraction to answer questions about the data. They practice this skill by first identifying their favorite type of fruit, then use this information to make their graphs. This fine lesson combines technology with hands-on activities sure to enhance your pupils' understanding of these math concepts.
Students construct line and bar graphs from data presented in tables. The development of a scale and label for each axis and the analyzation of data forms the basis of this instructional activity.
Second graders create a bar graph to pictorically represent the data collected from a survey of students. They use Excel to electronically create the graphs and data tallies. They then interpret their data using sentences to explain.
Learners create bar graphs and use them to answer questions about the data. They find the range and mode of the data set.
Elementary schoolers make and use bar graphs to picture information. They learn how choosing the right scale for a bar graph can help make a persuasive argument. This is a terrific lesson on graphing which should excite your kids. There is a nice weblink which leads your students to further on-line activities regarding graphing.
Students examine the use of bar graphs and histograms. In this data representation lesson plan, students investigate the proper use of bar graphs and histograms to represent data. They learn the proper geometric definitions, experience direct instruction, guided practice, and independent application using the provided worksheets.
Young scholars discover the uses of bar graphs and double bar graphs. In this graphing lesson, students analyze information about themselves and graph the results with the rest of the class.
In this bar graph worksheet, students read about making quality bar graphs and they make a bar graph using given data. They answer 5 questions about their graph.
Students develop bar graphs using comparison subtraction. They use the graphs to answer questions and play a subtraction game.
Students construct and organize data into a bar graph. In this graphing lesson, students practice reading a sample bar graph and answer questions based on the data. Students use test results from class to organize data into a bar graph.
Students interpret a bar graph. In this bar graph lesson students read the information in a bar graph. The students focus on the title, legend, and labels to assist in their interpretation.
For this Olympic bar graph worksheet, young scholars pick a sport from the 2004 Olympic games and find data from the Olympic web page. They graph the scores (times, distance, or speed) and the medals. They answer questions about the variables of the graph and other data that could be plotted on this type of graph from the Olympics.
In this cosmic bar graph worksheet, students solve 2 problems using given bar graphs that plot the number of galaxies vs. the galaxy type and the number of gamma-ray bursts vs. the burst classification. Students find the fraction of galaxies in the cluster that are spirals and the number of bursts that come from outside the Milky Way.
Challenge young mathematicians to buy classroom supplies by staying within the means of a $1,000 budget. The mathematical activity provides learners with the opportunity to decide what items from the supply list would benefit a class of 20 students, and calculate the totals using the four operations. A comprehensive approach to costs and benefits, children can create a labeled bar graph to represent the use of the money. Because there will be various solutions to the investigation, class members are encouraged to compare their choices with a partner. Note: A misalignment in the activity says that students will engage in Common  Core standard MP3, but it is actually MP4.
What better way to engage children in a math lesson than by talking about ice cream? Using a pocket chart or piece of chart paper, the class works together creating a bar graph of the their favorite ice cream flavors. Learners then work collaboratively in small groups answering a series of questions about the data they collected, referring to the graph to support their answers. Repeat this fun math activity on a daily or weekly basis, asking higher-level questions as the class become more comfortable with interpreting graphs.
Learners make a bar graph. In this graphing lesson plan, students discuss why bar graphs are used and are shown bar graph examples. Learners create their own bar graph to compare the heights of different things around the world. Students share their bar graph with another group.
Students explore the concept of bar graphs. In this bar graph lesson, students use computers to find the height of various things in the world such as buildings, people, boats, landmarks, etc. Students graph their results using a bar graph applet.
