We loved the great pictures in this book and learned the different ways graphs represent numeric information. We tied into our Chickadee project starting with a tally chart of birds and squirrel sightings in the backyard. E kept track of the numbers of birds and squirrels with a tally chart and then converted the information from the chart into a bar graph.
Writing/ Art/ Math integrated Collage with different graph pictures we cut and pasted from magazines and sentences describing why and when we use graphs.
