2nd grade, EasyChart HD

To review graphing skills, I gave out 6 different questions related with Halloween, with several answer choices each. On paper students polled each other to create a tally chart of how their classmates responded to each question. On the iPads, they used the app EasyChart HD to create a graph representing their data. Once everyone create a graph we shared as a class and talked about how graphs looked similar and different depending on the formatting choices made.

The app is easy to use and creates several types of graphs including bar and pie charts. Students can set the numbers, labels, and color schemes.
