Bar Graphs Using M & Ms

Fifth graders observe an overhead of a graph on which M & Ms have been poured out. A volunteer comes up and separates the colors writing on the overhead how many there were of each color and another person labels the graph's title. They discover that graphs are an easy way to show comparisons of data.

Hi, I was recently hired as a middle school science teacher in Newark, NJ. I received a call on a Friday and was asked to begin the following Monday. As a new teacher, and with only 3 days to prepare, I was really feeling the pressure. The school requires 2 weeks of lesson plans every Sunday, so I began searching the web for help. Thank goodness I found Lesson Planet. I still use the site everyday to form great lessons and activities for the kids.
