Teacher Notes (not visible to students)

For this lesson I posted the question "What is your favorite food?" on our class blog. I also gave them the following 4 options along with the pictures on page 2 of the student template for help: spaghetti, tacos, pizza, or chicken nuggets. I posted the question 1 week in advance of this lesson and gave kids plenty of time to respond. When it came time to do this lesson, the kids went to the blog, looked at all of the responses and used this as a way to collect data and make their graph. This process can be repeated for topics such as: favorite activity, favorite movie, favorite specials class at school, etc--the possibilities are endless.
