Spring has sprung, and we are deep into our On the Farm Unit. This week, we’ve been busy graphing our favorite farm animals. The children are learning that graphs are a way to organize information; their favorite animals are the information, and the graph is the organizer. Once the graph was completed, I worked with small groups to evaluate the data. We counted how many students liked each animal, and discussed the concept of more/less/same. Looks like it’s the horse for the win!
