Student Teacher


This task is from Tools 4 NC Teachers. Students create a bar graph based on data. There are samples of student work to help teachers assess and also to help anticipate student responses. This is remixable.

This resource will be difficult to use for online students. If chosen, you will need to add text boxes or other features to make it accessible.
Although the graphs and pictures are really easy to see and are visually clear, it may make it hard for online students to use easily.

This may be difficult to design on a computer if students are not familiar with generating tables. Perhaps fourth grade students are familiar with making bar graphs on the computer and in that case it may not be difficult.

The detailed graphs may be difficult to generate if there are students with visual impairments.

Students that struggle to see the 'whole picture' may have a very hard time generating a bar graph if there are no examples. It was not clear if the students were supposed to see the examples provided or if they were only for the teacher.

This resource was not designed for digital instruction. Inorder for all learnings to be able to access this resource in a virtual setting, many accessibility features will need to be added.

This lesson allows the students to collect data and to analyze data that they can show a representation for on a bar graph. It has clear learning objectives.

I am a 5th grade teacher currently looping with my EC inclusion class from 3rd grade thru 5th. I really like this activity because of the correlation with the 4th grade Science curriculum. * Full alignment to depth and breadth of standard tagged. * Has clear learning objectives that are achievable through completion of this resource * Has clear and sufficient assessment strategies that will accurately measure student progress and mastery of the specified standard * Strengths include showing the data in various bar graph forms (horizontal, vertical) and the included follow-up discussion opportunities. * Opportunity would be for the students to collect their own data and transfer that to the graph.

*I am a 6th, 7th, and 8th-grade math teacher. I really enjoyed that this task gave students the opportunity to represent and analyze data.
*This resource is a task partial aligned to standard NC.4.MD.4 by covering only the “make a representation of data and interpret data in a scaled bar graph.” This lesson should be considered as part of a unit that would also provide the students with the chance to collect data and determine whether a survey question will yield categorical or numerical data.
*Learning objectives for this lesson would benefit from added detail in order to specifically address what students should be able to do, what to do if those objectives are not met and provide suggestions for extensions.
*This task has clear assessment strategies that will accurately measure student progress of the specified standards but needs additional summative assessment strategies.
*This task is very clear and user-friendly and provides samples of student work.
*This resource would benefit from more detailed learning targets and the opportunity for students to collect their own moon phase data.
