Use these task cards in your maths class to have students independently analyse and interpret line graphs.

## Interpret Line Graphs and Solve the Tasks!

Use this set of 25 line graph task cards to get students to interpret line graphs and apply their analytical skills to solve real-world scenarios. The graphs examined are themed age-appropriately, including graphs about gardening, pets and family holidays!

To use in your classroom, either laminate cards or attach them to sturdy cardboard. Instruct your students to choose a card and record the task card number in their books or on their recording sheet before recording the answers to the questions. You may choose to mark the answers before students can choose another card or students can replace the completed task card and choose another for it to be marked later.

Through this activity, students will show their ability to interpret line graphs representing change over time and discuss the relationships that are represented and conclusions that can be made.

## Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding

A team of dedicated, experienced educators created this resource to support your data and statistics lessons

In addition to individual student work time, use this activity to enhance learning through guided maths groups, whole class lessons, or homework assignments.

If you have a mixture of above and below-level learners and ELL/ESL students, we have a few suggestions for keeping students on track with these concepts:

### 🆘 Support Struggling Students

Students could work collaboratively in pairs or small groups or with an adult to scaffold the activity.

### ➕ Challenge Fast Finishers

Students could create data tables for line graphs, they could turn all the false statements into true statements, graphs with mistakes can be redrawn correctly, students could collect their own data, draw the graph and ask questions to make their own task card as Task Card 25 suggests.

## Easily Prepare This Resource for Your Students

Print on cardboard for added durability and longevity. Place all pieces in a folder or large envelope for easy access.

To keep the task cards out of pockets or under desks, punch a hole in the corner of each to place them on a binder ring.

Sustainability Tip: Print a few recording sheets on cardboard and slip them into write-and-wipe sleeves. Students can record their answers with a whiteboard marker, then erase and reuse them.
