The students measured each other’s palm width and arm spans. The students then organized the data into a table. The students displayed the data on two-line plots.
The fifth graders are also learning about mean, median, mode, range, maximum, and minimum. The students calculated each based on the data they collected as a class. The students learned about line plots, bar graphs, circle graphs, and stem and leaf plots.
