It was SUCH a great way to end our study of landforms! We started the day reviewing what we knew about landforms and really dug deep into learning more about volcanoes. As a craft extension, we made these volcanoes.
When I even think of the words, I shudder. What do those Xs mean?
The numbers on the bottom? I have racked my brain for ways to make this fun and engaging and scoured the World Wide Web for other teacher who have done the same. Now I bring to you Most of what you will find here includes ideas for teaching line plots with fractions, but I have included other, more basic ideas to begin your unit.
Money can be applied to so many things. I created this little lemonade stand activity for students to begin working with line plots. They each get a bag of coins if you want to use whole numbers, you could throw some dollar bills in, too and sort them out.
They create a "line plot" using the money, then transfer it into a true line plot with Xs and fractions.
Simple and fun, and it is a quick way to show students the bones of a line plot as well as give them a way to remember that each X stands for a piece of your data. You can download the instruction page for free HERE. After this introductory activity, create a class line plot anchor chart together.
This teacher laminated the bones of it so that she could create a new one weekly If you are the owner of either of these anchor charts, please let me know so I can appropriately credit you! They are such a great tool for recording and organizing notes and making learning interactive at the same time.
Here is the line plot interactive notebook I came up with.
On the right hand side, we wrote a definition the same one that is on the anchor chart above. The foldable is used to show the process of making a line plot.
On the left hand side, students were each given 6 recipe cards and a prompt. They use the recipe cards to create several line plots. There are TONS of options for creating different line plots using the recipe cards!
You can download the templates for this two-page spread and the recipe cards for free HERE. The Teacher Studio has an excellent post about three hands-on math stations she used with her kids while teaching line plots.
I highly, highly recommend you pop over and check them out!
