A line plot is an excellent type of graph to use to organize data. When using a line plot, the data is displayed as points, checkmarks or an X above the numbers on a number line.  Line plots are great when there aren’t many numbers to chart. In the video, the teacher measures 6 airplanes with a centimeter ruler. On the whiteboard, he records the data from each measurement. He completes the measurement and then arranges the numbers from smallest to largest. At the bottom of the page, he enters the data on the line plot by tracing an X above the numbers that represent the data collected. Have fun in your math class with hands-on measuring and line plot activities: • Each student measures one foot to the nearest inch and records the data on a line plot. • Students jump from a stationary position and measure the length to the closest foot and records the data. • Measure the length of a thumb or finger to the nearest centimeter and plot the data on a line plot.
This video provides instruction on picture graphs. Picture graphs use pictures instead of numbers to show the data.  Students practice reading the data on a picture graph and then answer word problems using the information from the graph to find the answers.  The picture graph shows how many cups of coffee a coffee shop sold on each day over four days. The teacher instructs the students on how to read the graph. Then, there are four questions to answer. The questions vary in complexity. For example, one question asks: On which day were 10 cups of coffee sold? Another question is more complex: How many more cups of coffee were sold during the second day than the first day? The teacher carefully explains how to solve each word problem. Pictures graphs are great for teaching children about organizing data. Students use higher-order thinking skills when interpreting and analyzing the data and a picture graph is child-friendly and ideal for primary age students.
