Dot plots, histograms, and box plots Lesson

This is a list of resources/games to help teach students about dot plots, histograms, and box and whisker plots.

Graph Maker · Plotly Online

This website allows you to create graphs. I chose this because it is simple to use, and allows you to create the 3 graphs needed for this lesson/standard.

How to make a histogram to visualize data and solve problems

This website explains an activity you can do to teach how to make a histogram. I chose this website because this idea makes the lesson about the students which will make it more personal to them.

Create a dot plot

This is a video explaining how to create a dot plot. I chose this video because it gives step by step instructions on how to create a graph. This video would be good for the students to watch for a review or if there happened to be a sub in the classroom that day.

Khan Academy

This website has a video to teach dot plots and histograms, and then has practice problems the students can do. I chose this because this would be a good resource to use whenever the class in in stations during blended learning.

Khan Academy

This is a video with practice problems for dot plots. I chose this resource because it begins to introduce fractions within the dot plots. This is an activity for the students who are more advanced to do whenever they finish the daily assignment.

Histograms | Brainingcamp

This is online lesson to help students with histograms. I chose this because it contains a lesson, manipulative, problem questions, and challenge questions. This is a lesson/assignment students can completely do online.

Comparing dot plots, histograms, and box plots

This website compares the three different graphs covered in this standard. I chose this because not only does it compare them, but it gives problems asking the student which type of graph would be best for in information they provide.

Create Histograms - Grade 6 - Practice with Math Games

This is a game that allows students to create histograms. I chose this because it could be used as a review game when students are working independently. It had different levels which will make it fun for the students to see what level they can reach.

Interpret Box-and-Whisker Plots - Grade 6 - Practice with Math Games

This gives students the chance to interpret box plots. I chose this because it is a game with multiple levels for the students to independently work through as a review, or as part of the lesson.

Create Line Plots - Grade 6 - Practice with Math Games

This is a game that allows students to work with dot/line plots. I chose this because it would be a good game for the students to play/work through as part of the lesson, or it would be good for a review before the test.
