Learning how to represent numerical information is a key part of the year four maths curriculum. This lesson in data provides guided instruction designed by our team of curriculum experts and teachers to present this concept in an engaging way. Not only that, but helpful exercises help kids to see the practical applicaton of these skills in the real world.
This lesson includes 5 printable learning activities.
Bar Graphing with EggsThe hens are laying eggs faster than Farmer Brown can catch them! In this “egg-cellent” data and graphing game, kids must first use a frying pan to quickly catch as many eggs as they can. They will then sort the colorful eggs into like categories and create bar graphs to represent their data. This farm-themed game is a fun way to engage year four maths students in the process of collecting and organizing data while practising bar graphing with eggs.
Collecting and Organizing Data 1Students will learn how to collect and organise data thanks to this interesting exercise from Education.com.
Probability and Statistics 1This engaging exercise will introduce students to probability and statistics in a way that excites them to continue learning.
Picture Graphing with FishIt’s raining fish! In this three-part data and graphing game, kids use a pelican to catch as many fish as possible as they fall from the sky. After the fish have been collected, they must sort their haul into like categories and use their data to correctly complete a scaled picture graph. Picture graphing with fish is a unique and entertaining way to engage year four maths students in the process of collecting and organizing data.
Scaled Picture Graphs In this exercise, students will practise interpreting scaled picture graphs.
Scaled Bar GraphsThis exercise will clarify just how scaled bar graphs represent data found in maths problems.
Measurement and Graphing 1This exercise will introduce students to the concept of taking measurements and graphing the data.
Zap and Kreb: Graphing Word ProblemsZap and Kreb are collecting data about Earthlings, and they need to organise it for General Trog. In this silly maths story, kids are swept up in this zany quest as two goofy aliens observe and record their findings on Earth. Readers must stop and choose graphs that match Zap and Kreb's findings, combining data questions with an engaging story—the perfect learning combination.
Word Problems and Graphing Students will be able to translate word problems into various types of graphs after completing this exercise.
