Students participate in grade appropriate research to gain background information on frogs and tadpoles. In this frog and tadpole survival lesson, students simulate conditions of being a frog in receding pool. Students are eliminated from the simulated pool by predators and lack of resources for survival. Students understand the environmental factors that are eliminating the frogs. Students record information on graphs and logs. Older students later write persuasive pieces.
Students explore bar and line graphs. In this data collection, graphing, and weather lesson plan, students compare bar and line graphs and discuss which type of graph would be most appropriate for displaying a ten day weather forecast. Students view the "Weather Channel" to obtain a ten day forecast for their area, and use the grid paper template of their Smart Board to construct a graph from the data collected.
Sixth graders compare and contrast bar and line graphs. Using a weather forecast of the area, 6th graders record the high and low temperatures in a table. Students determine and justify the most appropriate graph to display a given set of data. They construct an appropriate graph.
Fifth graders observe and demonstrate how to graph data in a variety of ways. As a class, they graph information from "World Population in Millions" data, then in pairs create two different types of graphs to illustrate data about skyscrapers. Independently they conduct research on a selected topic and create an appropriate graph to display their findings.
