?_Geography Imports and Exports Bar Graphs
 

Use examples of bar graphs from student texts to show students the various features of this form of data display. Bar graphs can be used to represent data visually. Data can be displayed using horizontal or visual bars. The length of the bars is proportional to the numbers they represent. A bar graph is helpful for making visual comparisons of data. For older students, you may encourage them to create a double bar graph.

Use or adapt the following criteria to evaluate student bar graphs:

  • the student correctly uses appropriate labels on the graph
  • the student created an appropriate legend
