Double Bar Graph elementary lesson and activity

Logo for Double Bar Graph elementary lesson and activity
This is an activity to teach third-fifth grade students learn how to conduct a survey and create a double bar graph on their own.  They will also input their information into a computer program that will generate a graph.  They will use a tally table for their survey.

This is a simple yet effective lesson plan on creating double bar graphs. The audienc is meant to be mid-elementary school students who have some experience with math already. One aspect I really liked about the presentation was that the eventual graphing program as stated in your technology needs was an online graphing web 2.0 application. Another aspect that I thought you excelled at was the motivation section. It is great when students can create their own work and make something that they can be proud of. I also liked the novelty section, where students will help the teacher initially to correct a badly set up bar graph. This will give students an extra bit of knowledge in doing their project. Some things that could be improved on would be some sepcific mentions about applications of UDL principals. For example, is this only going to be a lecture or are you going to use youtube tutorials as a secondary teaching method? I thought though that the teaching questions you asked were all very well written and would make the kids gain a lot of knowledge about graphing itself. Well done lesson plan!

In the instructional objective I like how you included the type of knowledge the student will need to know in relation to the universal design for learning. In this section you may also want to include NETS objectives or Common Core Standards that this lesson meets.
I like that you have the students collect real and meaningful data from their classmates.
This lesson should be relatively easy to implement in the classroom and technology lab.

Technical Remarks:

In the technology needs section I like the web site that the students can access. I like the demonstrations of how to create various styles of graphs. The video demonstrations will be helpful for students to learn at their own pace. They have the option to revie the material over and over if they don't understand the material. The audio and visual in the video will help all learners.
