**Objective**:

This mini-teach is for fourth grade.

The learner will: participate in making a graph

be able to make a simple graph

predict and observe

perform accurate measuring

follow directions

**Materials Needed**:

Tape measures

Graph paper

Instruction and Table sheets

**Strategies**:

-Show examples of a bar graph to reinforce the concepts of a bar graph.

-Distribute tape measures, instruction and table sheets, then explain.

-Divide students into groups

-Instruct students to follow the directions on the instruction sheet.

-After measuring the arm span predict the person's height.

**Follow-up Learning**:

-As a homework assignment have students conduct this same activity on their

family members or friends.

-Students will randomly switch homework graphs with their classmates to be

read in class.

**Performance Assessment**:

-Learner will be able to construct a graph of the girls and boys height and

arm span of the class.

-A table of the students' height and arm span will be distributed to each

student.

-Each student will construct their own graph of the class..

Teacher will circulate and observe the learners application of the above.
