Ask students to help you gather information about he class, for example, types of shoes, hair color, or number of siblings. Then demonstrate how to organize and display the information on the Graph It! Organizer. Write a title for the graph in the white space along the bottom edge, and fill in the shaded spaces along each axis with appropriate labels. Complete the graph, using the information you collected about the class. The ty0pe of graph you use will depend upon the kind of information you gather and how you want to interpret it. If the whole class is using the organizer to make the same type of graph, you may wish to fill in the labels before making copies for the students.
