How Graphs Help Us

Each student in the class places one of their shoes on the floor. They discuss the shoes, and attempt to categorize them by type. By lining up shoes in columns on a large piece of paper, they create a graph of their shoe type. Students watch as the teacher labels the x and y axis of the graph. Students create a bar graph on paper. Students create their own bar graph with items brought from home.

As a first year teacher Lesson Planet was an incrediable help. I could see what other teachers had done to give me ideas. The time guidelines, materials needed and resource information gave me guidance in structuring my own plans. Many of the plans are well laid out and were very usable, which was a great time saver.
