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.
