    Lesson plans with graphs can be so much fun. I took a look at this site:
    http://www.mathleague.com/help/data/data.htm#bargraphs
    What I liked about it is that it gave a lot of good kid-friendly examples of all types of graphs. For example: how much does each topping weigh on a pizza.
    What I was thinking is that you can use these graphs in a few different ways. You might want to have one of them as your do now. I know the material is not yet covered, but ala Dy/Dan it would be interesting to ask the students what one of the graphs represented. I think many would get it. Also, you could use a lot of these during your instruction or for the daily assessment/exit slip.
