<p>CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.2.MD.D.10<br/>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.</p><p>One resource I use to teach bar graphs is the Lakeshore hands on math tray. &nbsp;Lakeshore also has trays for Venn Diagrams, sorting, patterns, and counting. &nbsp;These trays are designed for small manipulatives like counting bears, Unifix cubes, or foam counters. &nbsp;If your school does not have instructional money available to purchase these trays, they can be easily made using 2-3 ice cube trays glued to a base or taped together.</p><p>When I teach students about graphs we first collect data by reading an article or taking a class vote, for example. &nbsp;We record data and then use manipulatives to represent the data on the bar graph. &nbsp;After this whole group learning, students can use graph paper to draw and color the bar graph as independent practice. I recommend taking a vote related to the manipulatives for the first lesson. For example, students could vote on their favorite color or plastic animal. Rubber stamps are also good for making pictograph-type bar graphs on paper.</p>
