Title: Apples A Peel to Me
Description:
This is a lesson plan for students to use apples to make a graph and pictures to make a graph. The lesson plan can be adjusted to include other objects or items.
Standard(s): [MA2013] (0) 16: Classify objects into given categories; count the number of objects in each category, and sort the categories by count. (Limit category counts to be less than or equal to 10.) [KMD3] [MA2013] (1) 18: Organize, represent, and interpret data with up to three categories; ask and answer questions about the total number of data points, how many in each category, and how many more or less are in one category than in another. [1MD4]

Title: M&M Graphing Lesson Plan
Description:
The purpose of this lesson plan is to provide students with a handson and cooperative learning experience in the process of collecting, analyzing, and interpreting data, and to improve decision making skills through the use of probability.
Standard(s): [MA2013] (1) 18: Organize, represent, and interpret data with up to three categories; ask and answer questions about the total number of data points, how many in each category, and how many more or less are in one category than in another. [1MD4] [MA2013] (2) 23: Draw a picture graph and a bar graph (with singleunit scale) to represent a data set with up to four categories. Solve simple puttogether, takeapart, and compare problems using information presented in a bar graph. (See Appendix A, Table 1.) [2MD10] [MA2013] (3) 18: Draw a scaled picture graph and a scaled bar graph to represent a data set with several categories. Solve one and twostep "how many more" and "how many less" problems using information presented in scaled bar graphs. [3MD3]

Title: Soups On!
Description:
This lesson integrates children's literature and math. The students will listen to "Stone Soup" by Marcia Brown and bring items from home to make "First Grade Soup." The children will use the items to create a graph and share information about their graphs.
Standard(s): [MA2013] (0) 14: Describe measurable attributes of objects such as length or weight. Describe several measurable attributes of a single object. [KMD1] [MA2013] (1) 18: Organize, represent, and interpret data with up to three categories; ask and answer questions about the total number of data points, how many in each category, and how many more or less are in one category than in another. [1MD4] [ELA2013] (0) 1: With prompting and support, ask and answer questions about key details in a text. [RL.K.1] [ELA2013] (1) 1: Ask and answer questions about key details in a text. [RL.1.1]

Title: Create a Graph
Description:
Use this site to create 5 different types of graphs. There is a tutorial to help you decide the best graph for your data and teach you how to use the tools.
Standard(s): [BMA] BA04 (912) 6: Utilize tables, charts, figures, and graphs to enhance written and oral communication. [BMA] BA11 (912) 5: Create charts and graphs to clarify data and share information. [HLS] HL07 (912) 3: Construct graphs, charts, and tables to organize collected data for supporting a project. [MA2013] (1) 18: Organize, represent, and interpret data with up to three categories; ask and answer questions about the total number of data points, how many in each category, and how many more or less are in one category than in another. [1MD4] [MA2013] (2) 23: Draw a picture graph and a bar graph (with singleunit scale) to represent a data set with up to four categories. Solve simple puttogether, takeapart, and compare problems using information presented in a bar graph. (See Appendix A, Table 1.) [2MD10] [MA2013] (3) 18: Draw a scaled picture graph and a scaled bar graph to represent a data set with several categories. Solve one and twostep "how many more" and "how many less" problems using information presented in scaled bar graphs. [3MD3] [MA2013] (4) 22: Make a line plot to display a data set of measurements in fractions of a unit (^{1}/_{2}, ^{1}/_{4}, ^{1}/_{8}). Solve problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions by using information presented in line plots. [4MD4] [MA2013] (5) 19: Make a line plot to display a data set of measurements in fractions of a unit (^{1}/_{2}, ^{1}/_{4}, ^{1}/_{8}).
Use operations on fractions for this grade to solve problems involving information presented in line plots. [5MD2]
