Vocabulary: Greatest Least Graph Tally Content Area and Grade or Age Level of Students: Kindergarten Math: 5-6 yo Objectives: Students will: Graph classmates favorite animal using the student graph. Count how many students each farm animal was their favorite. Graph their favorite farm animal using a class spreadsheet on the computer. Identify which farmyard animal had the greatest number of students favorite it and which had the least. Students will tally the number of students indicated that each animal was their favorite. Standards Addressed: Math: K.1.E Count objects in a set of up to 20, and count out a specific number of up to 20 objects from a larger set. K.1.F Compare two sets of up to 10 objects each and say whether the number of objects in one set is equal to, greater than, or less than the number of objects in the other set. Relative Advantage: Students will be using a graph in both hard copy form and in a spreadsheet form as the introduction to this lesson. The spreadsheet allows students a visual for how many students in the class like each farm animal as wall as how a graph changes as the numbers on the graph change. Timeline: 1 hour Materials:
