## What is a Line Graph and How Do We Use Them?

Does theme of your next Grade 5 maths lesson involve teaching students about the various ways line graphs can be used to display data, and how we use (interpret and analyse) line graphs in order to find out information on a given topic? If so, then this set of 24 task cards themed around weather, is going to be your go-to for teaching about line graphs!

Why teach with task cards? Task cards are a valuable tool to support active learning, critical thinking, collaboration, and differentiation in primary classrooms. They add variety to teaching methods and help create a more engaging and effective learning environment for students.

## This Line Graph Task Card Set Includes:

• 1 title page
• 4 different line graphs (2 to a page)
• 24 task cards (6 to a page)
• 4 recording sheets

Through this activity, students will interpret line graphs representing change over time, and discuss the relationships that are represented and conclusions that can be made. This activity will have students reading line graphs that show the varying temperatures or weather conditions and draw conclusions on the best time to hold annual school events based on suitability.

## Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding

Our team of dedicated, experienced educators created this resource to support your data and graph lesson!

### Support All Students’ Levels Through Differentiation

There are 3 levels of questions for each line graph.

• Level 1 questions are literal questions that require students to practise the skill of reading the line graph.
• Level 2 questions require a higher level of reading, students are required to gather multiple pieces of data from the line graph to draw conclusions
• Level 3 questions are inferential questions, these require multiple pieces of data from the line graph as well as real-life knowledge to make the inference.

These clearly labelled levels make differentiating this resource a breeze! All the levels are colour coded, easy to identify, separate and assign.
