2nd Grade--Creating Graphs About School

Last week I read Graphing the Desert by Jennifer Roy and we spent some time discussing/comparing/contrasting the 4 types of graphs used in the book. I provided each group of 2-3 students with a rubric for each of the 4 graph types (bar, line, pie, and pictograph) and asked them to create graphs relating to our school. They had to complete the pictograph using either paper or Doodle Buddy and the other 3 types of graphs I gave them the option of using paper or Easy Chart HD. When everyone was finished they shared graphs with other groups and asked/answered questions about them.

Here a few samples of their graphs.
