In this video, students interpret data on a bar graph and match the data to a corresponding picture.
The video teacher begins the lesson with an explanation of a bar graph. Students learn that the graph is used to show information clearly and easily using a chart. Students begin their work by looking at the graph and they easily see that the chart tells them that there are five roosters, seven chickens, and nine chicks recorded on the graph. Now the task is to choose the correct picture that shows that number of birds. The teacher counts the number of roosters, chickens and chicks in the picture and records each total on the whiteboard. She carefully counts each of the birds in the next answer choice to make sure she is correct.
Using bar graphs is an easy way to organize data or information. Students learn to read the data on the graph and then answer questions about the data. This video worksheet lesson is a great addition to math instruction.
