We will use items around the house for the data portion of the graphs. Make a horizontal graph with 20 boxes that go across. At the top number the graph from 0 to 20.
On the left draw a picture of a spoon, below it a fork, and below that a knife. Go to the kitchen and take all the forks, spoons, and knives (make sure that you handle these items if they are sharp) and create three stacks. Now count each item. Fill in one box for each spoon, each fork, and each knife. Now you can ask your child questions regarding the graph.
Ex. How many spoons do we have? Do we have ore spoons or forks?
