Common Core Content Activity:
Dotplots and Histograms: In these activities, we learn about creating Dotplots and Histograms. The students are introduced to the dotplots and histograms in a step-by-step manner. Students learn to collect data, use tally marks and create the dotplots and histograms. Then the students continue on with more complex activities to test their knowledge. Throughout the unit, the students practice all activities on real-life examples.
Each activity is completed on two different levels for differentiated instruction.
The unit includes: answer key, bulletin board pictures, vocabulary cards, and practice assessment
