MD 9-10- Measurement and Data and a Freebie!

We just finished our unit on measurement and data.  The kids really enjoyed this unit because it let them do two things that they love!  They got to talk to their friends and they got to get out of their seat and move around the room.  We began our unit by learning what a line plot was.  We used a line plot to show our favorite colors.  Over the course of a few days, we conducted several different surveys in our class asking favorite candy, cookies, color, pet, subject in school and kind of gum. Students took their book and their pencil and got to work.  They made tally marks to record their answers.  Next they used the tally marks to make a line plot, a pictograph or a bar graph.  Finally they answered questions about their data.  Here is a look at the kids collecting their data. 

I also had several graphs that students made where they generated their own data.  One was with coins.  They took a handful of coins from their coin bag and sorted them. Next they made tally marks to count.  Then they made a graph to show the information and finally answered questions about their data. Here is a look at this graph.

  I've included the coin graph here for you for free!  Click HERE FOR THE FREEBIE!
These activities are part of my measurement and data unit.  It covers Second Grade Common Core Math Standards 2.MD.9-10.  Here is a look at the entire unit.

I can't believe Spring is in a few days and Easter is coming soon! 
Counting down the days.....
