You are going to choose your favorite animal to write to. Then as a class we will create a bar graph and pie chart representing our choices.

slide11

These are the animals that the class chose to write a friendly letter to. Which animal is most popular? Which animal is the least popular? What type of graph is this?

slide12

What type of graph is this? Does it show the same information as the bar graph? How are the two graphs different and alike? Which one do you like better?

brainstorming
Brainstorming

Now that you have chosen the animal you are going to write to, you need to brainstorm about what you write about in you letter. Follow this chart to help you brainstorm. You may include information about the animal’s habitat, diet, and other interesting facts.
