Students in a fourth grade class have recently been interviewing
their first grade buddies to gather information about their opinions so they
could use the data to create graphs. Pictured
above, students from the fourth grade class are sharing their graphs and
findings with their buddies. Both grade
levels have been studying graphing, and this experience was a great opportunity
for learning across grade levels.
