What's in a Graph?

This What's in a Graph? lesson plan also includes:

How many yellow Skittles® come in a fun-size package? Use candy color data to construct a bar graph and a pie chart. Pupils analyze bar graphs of real-life data on the Texas and Massachusetts populations. As an assessment at the end of the lesson, they gather sports data from the CNN/Sports Illustrated website to graph. At the beginning of the year, it is helpful to revisit graphing skills with mathematicians and scientists; this is an engaging lesson for doing just that!
