Kansas State Fair
2nd Grade Math
Students to gain hands on practice of graphing. State Standards for Math 2.MD.10: Draw a picture graph and a bar graph (with single-unit scale) to represent a data set with up to four categories.
Materials: Paper and pencil.
Draw a picture graph and a bar graph representing all the different weights of pumpkins.
During your Kansas State Fair field trip, visit the Agriculture department in the Pride of Kansas Building (see fairgrounds map for building location). Locate the pumpkin display. Have the students draw a graph representing all of the different pumpkin weights. How much does the largest pumpkin weigh? How much does the smallest pumpkin weigh?
Domain: Measurement and Data (2.MD.10)
Cluster: Represent and interpret data
10. Draw a picture graph and a bar graph (with single-unit scale) to represent a data set with up to four categories. Solve simple put- together, take-apart, and compare problems using information presented in a bar graph. (See glossary, Table 1)

Learning Targets: What are the knowledge, reasoning, performance skills, and products that underpin the standard?
Knowledge Target (Know It): I can recognize data on a picture graph and bar graph.Reasoning Target (Mental Process – Use It): I can compare problems using information presented in a bar graph.
Performance/Skill Target (Show It): I can demonstrate how to make a picture graph and a bar graph to represent data.
Product Target (Create It): I can draw a graph that shows the comparison between information that is represented in the bar graph.
