Title: Graphing Measurement: Analyzing Attributes of Objects’ Heights and Weights
Description:

In this learning activity, students will collaboratively create a Google Form to collect data about the measurements of random objects found within the classroom. The goal of the learning activity is to (1) introduce students to using informal language (short, tall, heavy, light, etc.) to describe an object's height and weight, (2) how to collect data, (3) how to analyze data to find trends, patterns, and other important information about the objects. The teacher will lead the students in the process of creating a Google Form to collect data and then use the data in a spreadsheet to create charts to find trends and patterns about the objects analyzed within the classroom. This learning activity would be a great opportunity for students to practice the informal vocabulary used to describe attributes of the measurement of objects.

This activity was created as a result of the DLCS Resource Development Summit.
