 # Graphs on Paper

#### Curriculum – Data Management and Probability

For students to sort, classify, and display a variety of concrete objects, collect data, begin to read and describe displays of data, and begin to explore the concept of probability in everyday contexts.

#### Context

Students begin by sitting on the carpet in a circle. Students will move to tables to work on their graph package.

#### Materials #### Lesson Introduction

• Explain to students that they are going to be filling out graphs.

#### Lesson

• Go through and explain each graph (Appendix A). Remind students of the different components of a graph and how it should be filled out.
• It is important to emphasize that, for clarity, students must only fill in one box per unit so that it does not confuse the reader.
• For example, if there are two eggs in the bird’s nest, students should shade in precisely two boxes.

#### Closure

• When students finish filling in the graphs, they can practice reading the graphs with a partner or add in the numbers along the side of the graphs.
