**Line graph template **

Here are three topics that would provide suitable focus material and results for display as a line graph.

**Full House or Some Absent?**

How many students are there in your class? How many of those students have come to school today? Track the number of absentees by making a line graph that shows how many students are absent each day.

**The Jelly Bean Jar**

Put 250 bean counters in a jar. On day one, remove a handful of beans from the jar. Count the beans you remove. On day two, remove another handful of beans and count them. Continue to remove beans once a day for a week. Show the number of beans that remained in the jar each day on a line graph.

**Jack and the Beanstalk**

Do you have a plant growing in your classroom? Measure its height once a week for several weeks. Track its growth on a line graph.

On the same graph, make another line that shows how much water you gave the plant each week. Do you see a relationship between the two lines?
