Middle School Resource: How to Read Graphs
How to Read and Interpret Graphs
In 7th grade, students need to be able to read a variety of graphs. It is sometimes difficult to find a lesson that includes a variety of recent graphs. This 40-minute lesson provides an excellent introduction to a statistics unit. It includes double bar graphs, double line graphs, circle graphs, and pictographs for teachers and students to discuss. There are questions with answers provided for each type of graph. At the end of the lesson, teachers will have students complete a frequency table so that the creation of double bar graphs can be covered during the next class period.
