Use this lesson after introducing bar graphs.

1. Collect data- (Can be done as homework the night before) Students are to gather the full names of everyone living in their house. For the younger students, teachers can use only the students name.

2. Using the teachers step by step instructions, the students will take turns at the computer and enter their names/family members names into Graph Master. (I used Graph Master, but any graphing program may work)

3. Each students graph will be printed out and displayed in the classroom.

4. Once every student has completed their graph, the class will compare the graphs.

Questions to ask:
Who has the most members living in their home?
Who has the least?
Who has the longest name?
Who has the shortest name?
How many more letters is in _____'s name than in ______'s name?
Is there any one who has the same amount of letters in their name?

5. An award/certificate can be awarded to the person in the class with the longest name.
