Feet come in all different sizes. Find out just how wide the range can be while exercising your graphing skills.
Read books to students with a foot theme such as Teri Daniels’ "The Feet in the Gym" and Gary Soto’s "If the Shoe Fits." Students can find out more about footwear by reading Charlotte and David Yue’s "Shoes: Their History in Words and Pictures."
Ask students their shoe size. Divide students into teams to survey children in their grade and to gather data about the range of shoes sizes. Students use personal dry-erase boards to gather information. Down the left side use Crayola Dry Erase Markers to write all the possible shoe sizes you might find. Each shoe size can be represented by a different color.
Students should ask the same question: "What is your shoe size?" If they don’t know, invite them to remove a shoe to look. Mark each person’s shoe size with a tally mark.
Turn the information into a bar graph on a large dry-erase board. Write the title of the bar graph at the top. Indicate the shoe sizes on the left side, drawing different colorful shoes with a size on each one. Across the bottom create a number line to indicate how many students had each shoe size.
Draw a different colored bar from each shoe across to meet the number of students with that shoe size. Now everyone can see at a glance the whole range of shoe sizes. Which shoe size is most common? How many have tiny feet? How many kids have "Big Foot" status?
