Instructional Ideas

  • Assign a color for each graph to help class members see how they align, i.e. part A red, part B blue, etc.
Classroom Considerations

  • Individuals must have a Google account to complete the project
  • Each day's assignment will likely take more than a standard class period; if learners don't have access to the Internet at home, you may need to make sure they can complete it during study hall or double the scheduled duration
Pros

  • Provides step-by-step directions for making a graph in Google sheets 
  • Includes one rubric for the graph assignment and another for the writing assignment
Cons

  • None
