This activity is a great "Before" activity to make light of the relationship between sunlight and seasons.
Students use https://www.timeanddate.com/ to fill out the graphic organizer on the length of daylight hours. Students fill out their reflections and connections on the same sheet.
The class then collaboratively, along with the teacher, puts the information into a spreadsheet. Students and teachers decide what to name the columns and how to enter the information accurately.
Once the data has been entered the teacher leads a conversation about any trends or things that students notice about the length of the day and their relationship with seasons.
Next, the teacher leads the class in using a spreadsheet software such as Excel, Google Sheets, or Numbers to turn the collected data into a chart. Together, the class makes all the decisions as to which chart shows the data the best, labeling x and y-axis, and choosing a title for the chart.
Because there may be multiple charts that can represent the data accurately, show students what the data looks like in different chart formats such as a bar graph or a line graph. To further show the connection between the data and the chart, alter some of the information so that students can see how this affects the data visually in the chart.
*Depending on how technologically savvy your class is, some students may be capable of creating the chart themselves.
