A classroom-themed hands-on activity to introduce graphing skills.

Search and Find
Most students love search and find activities. Foster your budding data analysts with this appealing search and find template and its matching blank graphing sheet.
Students count the number of items specified and then use small manipulatives (such as counters, buttons etc) as markers. They place their markers on the graphing template in the correct boxes thus creating a data display with concrete objects.
A black and white version has also been included for students to colour if they wish.
