Wing Span

Unit 11: Going Batty Over Measurement and Geometry
Lesson 4 of 14

Objective: Students will be able to gather data and create a bar graph to compare information.

Big Idea: Many students create bar graphs and can explain questions like "more than" and "less than", but are not accustomed to actually gathering the data and building the graph from the ground up. This engaging lesson requires students to do all of the above.
