centers, math

First graders love graphing data! Today I’m sharing four fun and effective activities to practice graphing with your students. Best of all these graphing data worksheets are quick and easy to use in your class.

1. Grab and Graph

Grab and Graph is a great activity to place in a center or morning bin. The student instruction cards make the activity quick and easy to prepare. All you need to do is choose the items to graph, add the instruction card, and the matching graphing data worksheet in your learning area.

2. Roll and Graph

Roll and Graph is another great activity for morning bins, centers, or a free-time activity. It’s a really fun activity for partners or small groups, or it can also be played independently.

Start by building the dice and printing the graphing data worksheets for each student. Then, students take turns rolling the dice and graphing the data on their worksheet. Students roll and graph until one of their data points reaches the top of the graph (or until time runs out). Then, they answer the data related questions on the worksheet.

This Halloween roll and graph activity is perfect for your math center or morning bins.

3. Student Created Graphs

Having students create their own graphs is a great end of the year project. Students have been learning about graphs all year, and they are ready to put all their skills together, to create their own. Their graph should include: a title, labels, and the data they collected.

Students start by choosing a topic and surveying classmates. Have them create and record their data in a tally chart. You can provide a chart template or go a step further and have them create their own on blank paper.

Next, students compile the data they collected into a graph. They can choose to create a bar graph, pictograph, or other type of graph you have taught. They can decide if they want a vertical or horizontal facing graph. You can grab this graphing data worksheet for free.

Another option is to provide them with graph paper or blank paper and a ruler. It’s interesting to let students start from “scratch” and see what they can create on their own! Here’s some supplies you will want to have handy for this project: paper (blank or graphing), graphing worksheet template (optional), rulers, clipboards, pencils, crayons, markers, etc.
