The lesson was very well organized and certainly met the criteria of a real-world need.  Graphing is a necessary skill for many individuals, especially those entering the math and science fields.  It is also very valuable for inividuals to be able to read graphs to understand data that is presented in such a format.  I felt the lesson was appropriate for the age and would keep students engaged.  Well done!

Technical Remarks:

Using microsof word is a good way to integrate computers into the lesson - the only recommendation I would make would be to use either excel or software dedicated to graphing.

This lesson plan has a concise objective and an effective, easily confirmed assessment. The author’s motivation through group work is well fitted for the intended age group. The teacher modeling is a great instructional method for this age group, but should extend to the creation of the survey as well as the meaning of the math terms presented. The lesson is inclusive to kinesthetic, visual, and auditory learners alike. One improvement might be to make the graph physically with Legos as a medium, take a still picture, and insert that photo into the Word document using text boxes over the picture to label the graph. This could cater more to the often neglected kinesthetic learner. The technology needed is widely used and commonly available. The optional presentation is an engaging addition and can be a strong social capstone for the lesson. Overall this is an engaging, age-appropriate lesson with defined, attainable objectives.
