Have
your child get to
know members of your family by collecting information and picturing it
on a graph.
What
you'll need
Paper
Pencil
Crayons
What
to do
1. Choose an inherited family characteristic: hair colors, for example.
2. Count how many people in the family have the different hair colors.
3. Make a graph. For example, if 5 people have brown hair, draw 5 heads
side by side to show these five people.
Do the same for the other hair colors.
Graphs help everyone, including adults, understand information at a
glance.
By looking at the lengths of the lines of heads, your child can quickly
see which hair color, for example, is most common.
PS: Consider doing more fun printable
math activities.
