Our Interpreting and Representing Data (Grades 1-2) lesson plan presents graphs and helps students understand why we use them. Organizing data into a graph helps us to see the information quickly and be able to interpret or make predictions about the data. Parts of a graph, including the x- and y-axis, are explained as part of the lesson. During this lesson, students are asked to create several different graphs and answer questions about them in order to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to organize, represent, and analyze data in a bar chart.
