Box and whisker plot

How many of you teach box and whisker plot? I am a 4th grade teacher and my students were asked to answer 3 questions about a box and whisker plot today on a standardized test. One, I had never heard of a box and whisker plot and had to look it up on the internet to see what it even was. The math series that we have has common core already built in to it and it isn't in the 4th grade book, so I don't think it is a new common core item. I asked our 6th, 7th, and 8th grade math teacher if she taught it and she said it was in her 8th grade algebra book as a supplementary item. So I am really curious to see if anyone else teaches it and at what grade? Looks like I better start teaching it since it is going to be on a standardized test.

It is in our 6th and 7th grade curriculum in Virginia. I had never heard of it before I had to teach it.
