Math VoiceThread: Creating And Commenting On Graphs

October 27, 2010

Last week, we had a Skype call with @jgriffith2 as part of our Grade 1 and 2 graphing unit. The students in her class surveyed my students on a variety of topics, and my students surveyed her students on a variety of topics. Today my students worked in groups of four to take the results of the survey and record them in a tally chart. Then they looked at these results and offered some commentary on them using VoiceThread. Listen to their comments below and feel free to add some of your own. We would love to hear your response to these results.

Thanks for your help with this graphing activity!

P.S. I learned that we need to make smaller tally charts the next time because neither the document camera nor my camera can capture the entire graph.

  1. The questions the groups came up with & seeing them survey each other was so neat. It made the concept real outside of our classrooms. It was great to see the reactions each class had to the different questions they asked. For example, the one about favorite country flag brought some good discussion after the Skype call. Thank you for such a good connection to math and each other!

  2. Thanks for the comment! I completely agree. That flag question really brought out a great discussion here too. I think that this activity really made math meaningful! Thank you for suggesting the idea!
