This week I will be sharing ocean themed math printables with you. Today’s activity invites your children at home or students at school to find and count ocean objects. Then they are asked to create a bar graph using the data they have collected. Later in the week, I have a printable ocean counting book to share with you. We will end the week with ocean themed number bingo boards. It should be a fun week.
Find, Count and Create a Bar Graph Activity
Getting Ready for the Find, Count and Create a Bar Graph Activity
The first thing you will need to do is download the Find and Count Ocean Activity. You will find four different find and count sheets with matching graphing pages. Then your children or students can do some or all of the activity sheets. If you are not yet working on graphing and just want to work on counting, you can just print out the find and count sheets.
Using the Find and Count Sheets
The directions invite children to find out how many of each object is displayed on the page. Then children are asked to record how many they have found at the bottom of the page.
If you are worried your children may lose count, you can have them cross out, color, or place a number of each object as they count it.
Using the Create a Bar Graph Pages
While these pages were designed to record the date children have gathered on the find and count sheets. You could have your students come up with their own data and graph it.
How to generate different data?
Your children could roll a die for each ocean object. Then they could record the number on die by filling in bars on the bar graph.
