UNIT X UNIT 5 | 195 DIFFERENTIATED INSTRUCTION Scaffold Work with a small group to deepen understanding of graphs. Have each child ask a question about the graphs they created. The other children in the group try to answer. Amplify Connect to Social Studies Have children work in small groups to make a bar graph with the following information: Town 1: 5 inches of rain; Town 2: 10 inches of rain; Town 3: 8 inches of rain; and Town 4: 2 inches of rain. Discuss which towns have the most and least rainfall. FORMATIVE ASSESSMENT Read a bar graph Complete the sentences about the bar graph on page 194. 1. The graph shows the children’s favorite _____. 2. There are _____ children in the class. 3. Seven children like _____ weather. 4. _____ children like rainy weather. C • Identify topics Direct children to the calendar. Ask: What information do you see? Elicit or explain that the pictures show the weather each day for two weeks. This is the information, or data, that they will organize into a graph. • Associate visuals with concepts Point to each illustration and ask children to name the concept. Tell children to create a key they can refer to by copying the illustrations and labeling them with the words sunny, rainy, and windy. • Represent data Discuss as a class how to organize the data into a bar graph. Tell children to look at the graph on page 194 for ideas. Ask children to direct you as you create a graph on the board. Do not provide feedback. Instead, allow them to realize and correct their own mistakes as they see the graph take shape. • If children struggle with how to organize the data, ask questions to cue them, such as What is the label for the side? (number of days) What are the labels for the bottom? (windy, sunny, rainy) How many numbers go up the side? (six) How many bars do we need? (three). ANSWERS D • Interpret data Once the class has created the bar graph on the board, ask children to copy it down. Tell them to check their work carefully to make sure it matches the graph on the board. Then have children work with a classmate to answer the questions about the graph. Monitor pairs as they work to make sure they are reading the graph correctly. Offer assistance as needed. • Choose the operation Point out that for question 5, children must do a math problem. Ask them to write the equation and solve the problem.
