I just gave my post assessment for this unit last Thursday. Here are all the things we graphed:

Skittles (Bar graph)
Fruit Loops (Bar)
Family Members (Sister Graph, Brother Graph)- Bar
Favorite shoes, shows, colors, sports (Pictograph)
Pets (Pictograph)
Favorite Subject (Table)
Hot or cold breakfast (Table)

At the end of the unit, kids had to create their own question, gather the data and then create a bar, picto, or table graph to represent the results.

I hope these helps. Nicholette

I like to do class graphing. I use clip art...I usually pick three pictures for each graph. So if I do fruit, I'll use grapes, apples, and bananas, and the students have to pick their favorite from these, if it were sports, I would use baseball, football, and soccer. Each student gets a sheet with the three pictures on it..they pick their favorite, cut it out, and throw the rest away (this keeps them from changing their mind to influence the graph). Then I take a table at a time and ask them to bring their pictures up to the board. The pictures are attached to the board creating "bar graphs".
The students get excited, and they are able to participate...it becomes like a contest to see which item is the classes favorite.
I have graphed apples (yellow,red,green) cookies, pets, sports, juice, candy, holidays, colors, etc.

fruit loops

I do graphing with fruit loops. THe kids each get a bag of fruit loops. But the twist is...they eat one fruit loop for every one they glue on the paper. So then they learn that sometimes in graphs one square can really represent two things. Then they make a bar graph by looking at their picture graph with the fruit loops glued down to represent how many fruit loops they originally had.

all different types of graphs. Some on chart paper as a whole group. Some students create them in pairs or by themselves. It all depends on the lesson purpose.
