This week we welcomed in a new year! 2017 came before I even realized 2016 was over! The students came back to school yesterday and I knew they would be half awake so I decided the perfect standards to address would be the Scatter Plot Graph standards. My fifth graders must know how to create a scatter plot graph based on data and solve questions that refer to the data.
I had posted in a previous post about my Cup Stacking Activity. I have perfected the Cup Stacking Activity and have added it to my TpT store. I made this activity more STEM like and have added questions and graphs to the activity.
Students were timed in 10 sec intervals. In my more advanced class, I used 5 sec intervals.
The trio of students consisted of 3 jobs. The builder, who builds, the counter, who counts, and the recorder who records on the class graph.
Students had their own group graph too!
I like to display the class graph so that everyone can see how each group is doing. I color coded the groups on the graph.
