## Reflection: Real World Applications Why Use a Graph? Day 1 - Using 2 Different Color Objects - Section 2: Presentation of Lesson

We have been graphing pictures from worksheet images and books.  Today we started sorting and graphing real objects.  Every student has a different number of objects and is able to share what is in their cup by showing their graph.  This was the first time we did an activity like this, and the students struggled with keeping their objects organized and understanding that their graph was supposed to be different from their classmates.  I am going to do a very similar, almost identical, activity tomorrow with just more objects to graph.  I think with today's experience the students will be able to do much better tomorrow.
