Creating a graph

Students used data that showed that average hours of daylight in Columbia, Mo on the 15th of each month for a year. 

Students labeled their graphs with the title and the x and y-axis.

We used a bar graph to represent the data so we could visually see the patterns emerge over time.

While students were able to predict what their graph looked like before constructing it, this provided us with a good opportunity to talk about the process of setting up a graph and determining which kind of graph would be beneficial for our purpose.
