Double Bar Graph elementary lesson and activity

Rating: 4 stars
Used in Course: Not used in course
Submitted by: Seth Hendrickson (Teacher (K-12)), May 06, 2012

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!
