Teacher-Facing Resources

Type:Application Exercise

Estimated Time:90 minutes


Score Type:Mixed Graded

Work completed by a student will be graded through a variety of scoring options including participation, student self-assessment and teacher assessment via rubric to provide flexibility with the type of grade sent to the Learning Management System (LMS) gradebook. Student work may include opened-ended questions, correct/incorrect responses, a final product and/or a self-assessment

Available Language: English

Vocabulary: Properties of Matter, Science, Spreadsheet Software

Primary Objectives:

  • Student uses spreadsheet data to create bar graphs.

Secondary Objectives:

  • Student observes and records properties of matter.
  • Student estimates and measures mass.

S.5.b Students collect data or identify relevant data sets, use digital tools to analyze them, and represent data in various ways to facilitate problem-solving and decision-making.
1B-DA-06 Organize and present collected data visually to highlight relationships and support a claim. (P7.1)
1B-DA-07 Use data to highlight or propose cause-and-effect relationships, predict outcomes, or communicate an idea. (P7.1)
ELA-Literacy.L.3.6 Acquire and use accurately grade-appropriate conversational, general academic, and domain-specific words and phrases, including those that signal spatial and temporal relationships (e.g., After dinner that night we went looking for them).
Math.Content.3.MD.A.2 Measure and estimate liquid volumes and masses of objects using standard units of grams (g), kilograms (kg), and liters (l). Add, subtract, multiply, or divide to solve one-step word problems involving masses or volumes that are given in the same units, e.g., by using drawings (such as a beaker with a measurement scale) to represent the problem.
Math.Content.3.MD.B.3 Draw a scaled picture graph and a scaled bar graph to represent a data set with several categories. Solve one- and two-step ''how many more'' and ''how many less'' problems using information presented in scaled bar graphs. For example, draw a bar graph in which each square in the bar graph might represent 5 pets.
