I "mustache" you a question...

As part of our Math in Focus curriculum and Common Core State Standards students learned how to organize, represent and interpret data. 1st graders put these skills to the test and created their own tally and bar graph. Students first created a question to ask peers. They came up with everything from favorite animal, ice cream, movie and even favorite Patriots players.

1st graders then walked around the classroom, with mustaches on, to collect their data. Once data was collected students tallied the results and created their own bar graphs. We then analyzed and interpreted our information.

I "mustache" you a you love 1st grade?

Common Core Standard for Math: 1.MD.C.4 -Measurement & Data - Represent and interpret data: 4. Organize, represent, and interpret data with up to three categories; ask and answer questions about the total number of data points, how many in each category, and how many more or less are in one category than in another.
