Grade 2

Mrs. Lori Campbell's second grade students visited the computer lab in a a culminating lesson for the end of their graphing unit. Each student was given a baggy full of "pets." They were asked to record the data of how many pets they received in their bag on a tally chart which they were told would later be used in the computer lab to make a pictograph and a bar graph to represent their data in other ways. They used Graph Club software for their activity.

In math class the same day these second grade students practiced addition, subtraction and even multiplication facts using MonkeyByte Math software on their handhelds.
