Post all representations around the room. Spend about five minutes looking at all the different representations done by your peers. Consider why a particular representation help you compare the two sets of data, and be ready to share specific examples! If someone who didn’t know anything about our project visited our classroom, how would these representations help that person compare the heights of first and fourth graders? After five minutes, come back together as a class…

Discussion: How much Taller is A Fourth Grader?
You represented the first and fourth grade height data in different ways, but you all worked to find ways to make it easy to compare the two sets of data. What did you see in your classmates’ representations that you think would help someone compare the first graders and fourth graders? What did you notice when you compared the heights from the first-grade class with the fourth grade heights?

Representing the Heights of First and Fourth Graders
Technology Extension If students did not have an opportunity to create a digital bar graph for their representation, you may introduce the following website to them: Students may also recreate digital bar graphs from their independent work on the website. **See next slide for more information on website if this will be their first visit.

Technology Extension Introduce Double Bar Graph using Show students how to use the website to put their data in the double bar graph format. Site is user friendly with help to the left of the data entry that explains each data item they need to input. Allow students to work in pairs to create a double bar graph with the data they collected through measuring the two homerooms. Site allows you to color code or pattern code the bars to differentiate the data. Students can print from the website, or the graph to their teacher. Questions to think about as you work: Can you create a table to match your bar graph data? Were they any outliers in your data? What parts of your graph would change if you separated the data by boy/girl vs. homeroom? How many students were at least 4 ft tall? How many students in both classes were 60 inches tall? How would the data compare if you measured the heights of another grade level?
