Reading a Bar Graph

This video provides instruction on bar graphs. Bar graphs use a line or a bar that show the comparison in data. The bar graph in the video shows the number of items in a student’s pencil case. Students practice reading the data on the bar graph and then answer word problems using the information from the graph to find the answers.

The picture graph shows how many pens, pencils, erasers and ruler are in Jane’s pencil case. The teacher instructs the students on how to read the graph. Then, there are five questions to answer. The questions vary in complexity. For example, one question asks: How many pens are in the pencil case? Another question is more complex: How many things are there in all in Jane’s pencil case. The teacher carefully explains how to solve each word problem.

Bar graphs are great for teaching children about organizing data. Students use higher-order thinking skills when interpreting and analyzing the data and a bar graph is child-friendly and ideal for primary age students.

Great app!
This app is wonderful for my 7 years old son! :) It focuses on basic reading, writing, and math skills. The reward system is great and consistent!
Such a great app!
This was a really fun way to get my kids to practice their math. I usually struggle to get them into it and Kids Academy makes it easy.

Great app
Wow! This app is really great. For the first time my kids actually enjoy learning math and reading. The games on Kids Academy are educational and really fun.
Daughter's favorite
Still a top favorite for our 7 year old. She loves earning her stars as she learns to trace letters and numbers. Coloring and the sounds are engaging and are on target for her age group and being Pre K.
Great for kids
Our 7 years old daughter loves reading activities and every off-line game Kids Academy offers. This is a very good app, I highly recommend it!

We love how we can focus on math with this app. It is engaging and we love how we are able to adjust and tailor the levels according to our son’s knowledge and skill levels!
