-Image of buttons
Step 1: Go over the vocabulary words with the students and show them the example graph image. Talk over the image and ask them what they notice. Which sport has the most likes? Which has the least? How do you know? Discuss these questions and answers as a whole group.
Step 2: Explain to students that they are going to be creating their own graphs over an image of buttons. Pull up the button image on the screen so it is visible to all students. Discuss what they notice in the image. Go over the directions of this assignment with the students.
- You will each be given a piece of graph paper.
- On the graph paper you job is to graph what you notice about the buttons in this image, graph the different colors.
- The colors go on the bottom of the graph and the numbers go on the side, you may number it however you like.
- When you are done graphing you may use your colored pencils go color in the graphs so each one is a different color, this makes it easier to see.
- When everyone is finished we will come together as a class and share our graphs and the observations that we made about the buttons.
Step 3: Come back together whole group and discuss the graphs that the students created. What was the most common color of button? Using our vocabulary we learned as the beginning, what is the vocabulary word that matches the most common button? Which color as the least buttons? How many buttons were all together?
The student’s graphs will be assessed. I will look over the graphs to check their understanding of graphing and how they interpreted the button image. I will check to make sure their numbers are accurate and they correctly graphed the colored buttons.
