Thanks, a human graph sounds like a really fun lesson!

And I think I'll try the blocks, too.



Anyone else? - especially tips to give individual students struggling with homework that reqires reading graphs and answering questions.

Start simple by having the students arrange themselves in a line by height. Take a picture. Make plain paper copies and have them create a bar chart by drawing rectangles around each person and labeling each rectangle with the person's initials. For a little more useful graph, have them arrange themselves by birth month. Each month group completes their part of a pictograph on the board. I've also had kids use ones and tens blocks to build a true 3D bar graph.
