Day 7: Be A Data Display'a!
Bar graphs involved two variables represented on two axes. Data can be visually displayed on a bar graph.
- Student Sheets
- Collected Data
- Using the student sheet, explain to the students the concept of the bar graph and how it is created.
- You may wish to walk the students through the creation of the first bar graph. Be sure that the students have ready access to the data that they have collected for land use types as well as one or more of the following: Worms, Percolation, Recording Schoolyard Use.
Closure: This lesson leads right into the next activity which is designed to allow the students to mentally pull the data from the three graphs together to draw conclusions about their schoolyard.
