Favorite Farm Animal Graph

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!

The clipart used, in this graph, can be found at Clipart Kid.
