Interactive Math Activity - Reading Bar Graphs

Children will practice reading bar graphs in this engaging math activity geared toward a kindergarten grade level. Math questions in this online math lesson are accompanied by easy-to-read, colorful bar graphs which students will interpret during their math practice session. When your students complete this math lesson, they will have gained confidence and proficiency in basic bar graph skills.

Students will be asked a variety of math questions relating to bar graphs in this online math exercise. Here are some sample questions your students may be asked: Referring to a bar graph showing red and yellow counters, "Which has more, yellow or red?" Referring to a bar graph showing milk cartons, juice boxes, and water jugs, "How many water jugs?" and lastly, referring to a bar graph showing pets, "How many dogs?" As you can see, children will interact with a wide variety of data presented as bar graphs in this activity.

Built into this math activity, as well as all practice activities on "I Know It," are several features that help students make the most out of their math practice time. Students can click on the "Hint" button if they need a little extra help answering a question; they will be shown a relevant written or pictorial clue that will help them read the bar graph in question. When students answer a question incorrectly, a detailed explanation page will appear, showing them the correct answer with a custom graphic or step-by-step tutorial on how to obtain it. But that's just the tip of the iceberg!

Your students will also have access to a progress-tracker on their practice screen to see how many questions they have answered so far in the lesson. They will also have access to a score-tracker to track how many points they've earned in their practice session. A speaker icon indicates the read-aloud feature; when students click on it, the question will be read to them in a clear voice. This is a great tool for ESL/ELL students and students who are auditory processors.
