Using
Jan Brett's Postcards to collect data,
work with an Excel spreadsheet,
create graphs, and interpret graphs
Students
will work from Jan Brett's Postcards page, collecting data as to how many
cards are under each category. Students will place a tally card
under the correct category on a flannel graphing chart for each. The student,
given grid paper, will collect data on a given topic of his/her choice
and construct a bar graph showing the results. A title and key will
be included. The student
will read and interpret data represented in bar and picture graphs. Students
will place a
tally card under the
correct category on
a flannel graphing chart
for each.

Use an Excel spreadsheet to record data and create a bar graph that
summarizes collected data. Working
with the teacher, students will key in totals for each category in an Excel
spreadsheet. After
completing, the teacher will demonstrate how simple it is to convert a
spreadsheet to a bar graph. Students
will use the chart to analyze the data and finally the teacher will create
questions related to the bar graph for students to answer.
