Count and Graph – In the Classroom

PDF | 2 pages|Grades: Pre-K - 1

Practice collecting, sorting, and organizing data to create a graph with this 2-page worksheet.

Looking for a way to encourage counting skills and initiate the understandings of creating graphs 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 worksheet 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. Once students know their information is correct, they color each square where they have placed a manipulative.

Easily Prepare This Resource for Your Students

To turn this teaching resource into a math center or sustainable activity, print a few graphing sheets on cardstock and slip them into dry-erase sleeves. Students can color in the squares with a dry-erase marker, then erase and reuse.
