46 Lesson(s)

#### The days are getting longer!! That means summer is coming! In this lesson students discover this relationship by interpreting graphs and making claims about their findings!

#### Students begin their understanding of graphs by collecting data about how their class felt about a shared experience. Students use Little Bear as a jumping off point to see what a graph tells us about what people in our class think.

#### What good fishing trip isn't without a good story or two? Today the students will solve comparison story problems involving different lengths of fish.

#### Would you rather be a kid or a grown up? This question interests students and engages them in an interesting graphing exercise focused on how many total data points there are in a graph.

#### Students begin to understand that graphs are used to persuade. In this lesson, students collect classroom data, make sure all the statements that they hear about the data are true, and then try to convince the cafeteria staff to buy us more goldfish!

#### Students will think deeply about data they collected to generate sentences about the graph. This is a great culture building activity because it allows students to think about what they know about their classmates through this graph.

#### Next week marks the start of our Skiing and Snowboarding program at the Waitsfield School. Today the students will find out what each classmate would prefer to do.
