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.
