Teach Starter Publishing
Google Slide | 1 page | Grades: 2 - 3

Learn about the features and how to create a bar graph with this 25-page instructional slide deck.

What are the Parts of a Bar Graph?

The parts of a bar graph include:

  • a title
  • a labeled y-axis (the units being measured)
  • a labeled x-axis (the categories of data collected)
  • a scale
  • columns or bars

This instructional slide deck walks through the process of displaying data using a bar graph. Students will learn what each part of the bar graph represents and then will work as a class through the process of creating their own.

It is suggested that you draw the bar graph on a whiteboard or document camera while using the presentation so that students see the process of constructing the bar graph.

Through this activity, students will learn how to create displays using simple bar graphs.
