On the state test, students are asked to read and interpret graphs.They are asked to compare information from graphs. They are also asked to look at different charts and find the chart that represents the information on a graph.
In order to truly understand graphs, students need the experience of creating graphs.This should be done with manipulatives and also with technology. The experience must also include the task of discussing the information represented in the graph. I used sentence starters to help students know what to look for in the graph. Sentence starter such as:
The title of this graph is…
The _______with the most/least ______is_____
There are more/less ____________ than __________
The difference between the highest and the lowest is __________
A number sentence that represents the information on this graph is ___________________
Make a chart that represents the information on this graph.

This Thinglink includes tutorials of bar graphs, pie graphs, and line graphs. It also includes interactive sites to create graphs. Some of the tutorials included also provide examples of the questions about the graphs for students to ask and answer. There is also a Quizlet of vocabulary terms for graphs.
