Different Graphs

We are starting to learn about different graphs. We are learning to read and understand graphs.   
Today we made a water graph about Our Favourite Colours.

Each of us chose our favourite colour and added 1/4 of a cup of coloured water to the jar and this is the graph we created. We talked about how we all had to put in the same amount of water to make the graph accurate.

Together we decided the graph told us
-The red jar was the most full so red is Room 5's favourite colour.
-The green jar was the least full so it was Room 5's least favourite colour.
-Lots of children liked blue but not as many as red.

What else does the graph tell you?

We made a graph to find out the types of books we would like to read in our classroom. We created this graph together.
 This graph was very useful because we took it to Miss Sampson in the library so she could help us find books we wanted to read.

Now we have lots of scary books and once upon a time books in our class library, quite a few animal books, some non-fiction books and a funny book.
