Graphing in Interactive Notebooks for Science and Social Studies

Have you used graphing in your interactive notebooks?

Graphing is a great tool for students to learn to understand and convey information.   Here is a step by step way to make a circle graph.

Step one: Cut out circles.   I traced a can and then cut three different colors, but you could use more or less if desired.
Sometimes a circle is hard to cut out free hand, so I have created a template that makes it easier for the teacher and students.

Cut the radius of the circles as shown.   Remember to stop in the center. 
Interlock the circles using the slit created.
Add more colors as needed.
Below is an example in an interactive notebook. 
Graphing is a great way for student to demonstrate understanding in their notebooks.  This alternative to drawing their circle graph is engaging and meaningful to students.   It can be adjusted to show the statistics that they are wanting to show.  Collecting, analyzing, and recording data are all important process skills for science and social  studies.
