Graphs and charts are great because they communicate information visually. Graphs can show things in one quick glance which is why many companiesinclude them in their reports. Graphs are great for kids becausethey use colors and pictures which help focus the attention of our youngest students.

The little movie is produced by NASA. and features Ted Tunes an animated skunk. It is short and does a great job of introducing graphs. After the on line video

I like to give the kids some hands on experiences with graphs. My favorite graphs for our younger students are edible graphs. I printout a Excel grid with large blocks. I give each student a bag of M & M’s , lifesavers, or even those colored min marshmallows. I show the students on the projector how to line up the candies by color. ( You can of course usebuttons-just don’t eat them.) I demonstrate how I can color in each square to represent the candy using the fill tool on excel. When finished the children can tell without counting which color had the most! Don’t expect this to take more than 5 or 6 minutes because it’s all about gobbling up the sweets!

If you don't have Excel handy here is a printable chart in PDF format. from A to Z teacher.

This series of lessons can help you learn more about the various types of charts and graphs. Not only can you learn how to extract information from them, but you will also learn how to build them.
