Line Plot Lesson Plan

Learning how to measure, gather data from those measurements, and use that data to draw conclusions is an important skill. In this fourth grade lesson plan, students are asked to consider the question, What is the best way to organize data? Students measure their feet and use data from those measurements to interpret data during line plots. This lesson is engaging because students are gathering data that is specific to them. Students are also challenged to think about more than one way to organize the data that they are collecting. A teaching tip is to ask students to share their responses to the question, what is the best way to organize data? before you begin the lesson. You can then circle back to their answers after the lesson is over, and students can share if they have learned new ways to organize data or if their original responses have changed.
