The Results Are In! Our Class Graphs Favorite Genres

polls.gifYou might have noticed the online poll our class has had on our blog. We asked the question: What is your favorite genre? 29 people replied. According to our survey, the genre mystery had the most votes. With that information, we went to work creating different graphs to represent what we learned.

To start the activity, I divided the kids into 5 groups. I passed out all the materials needed to create the graphs as well as a printed copy of the poll results. Everybody was an important part of completing their group’s project. We made 5 different graphs and tables- bar graph, line graph, pie graph, pictograph, and a tally table. Not only was this a great cooperative learning activity, but it was tons of fun to use an online poll from our blog to help us understand the different types of graphs!

Graphs, Graphs, & More Graphs!

We are studying about data collecting and graphing this week in math. We can collect data and make simple graphs on ANY subject… just think of a question, ask that question to others (this is called a survey), and then put that information, or data, in an easy to read form. There are all sorts of ways to represent your data- bar graphs, line graphs, pictographs, pie graphs, and Venn diagrams.
