Garden Graphing Without A Green Thumb
Kindergarten students love graphing and it is great to put them in teams to do this activity. I have them collect the data first, talk to their partner to check for accuracy, and then fill in their chart. If your students are English language learners be sure they have labels for these pictures and encourage students to use academic language. Sometimes I will tell them, "I want to hear... We always come back as a group and talk about what we had the most of, the least, the same amount of... With practice throughout the year students become quite independent.
You could use this same picture and have them record this with tally marks. Wow, killing many standards with one lesson. That's perfect!
