Count and Graph – Under the Sea

PDF | 2 pages|Grades: 1 - 2

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

Looking for a way to encourage counting skills and initiate understandings of data representation at the same time? As you lay the foundations for using bar graphs, are you after an alternative to picture graphs? Then this is the resource for you!

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.

Print the pages on card for extra durability – this way they can be used again and again.

A black and white version has also been included for students to colour if you would prefer to use the resource as a worksheet.
