Interactive Math Lesson - Interpreting Bar Graphs

Here is a fun interactive math activity that helps children practice interpreting bar graphs. This online math game is geared toward fourth-grade students. In this math practice game, students will read and answer questions about a variety of bar graphs. Upon completion of this online math lesson, students will gain a greater understanding of bar graphs.

Children will face a variety of challenging math questions in this bar graph math activity. Here is one example of a scenario and question students may be given with an accompanying bar graph: "Each year, the fourth graders at Davidson Elementary School hold a fundraiser for their end of year field trip. The graph below shows how much money each class raised. Which statement is true?" Students will choose from the following options: "The class of 2015 raised more money than the class of 2013." "The class of 2014 raised more money than the class of 2016." Or "The class of 2015 raised more money than the class of 2016." Questions in this math practice activity are presented in multiple-choice format and fill-in-the-blank format.

A variety of built-in features help students make the most of their math practice sessions, including this fourth-grade bar graph activity. Students can click the "Hint" button if they get stuck on a math problem; each hint gives a custom picture clue that will point students in the right direction without giving the answer away. When students answer a question incorrectly, a detailed explanation page shows them where they went wrong, so they can learn from mistakes. A progress-tracker shows children how many questions they have answered in the lesson so far, and a score-tracker lets them know how many points they have earned so far in their math practice. Finally, a speaker-icon indicates the read-aloud feature; students can click the button to have the question read out loud to them in a clear voice. This is an excellent option for ESL/ELL students and students who prefer auditory learning.
