Students will become aware of the different homes in which people may live. In a simple bar graph they will compare the dwellings of their classmates.
butcher paper (approx. 5 feet); marker; 3"x3" squares of white paper for each student; colored pencils; tape
Have class look at completed graph. Where do most of the students live? What is the least common dwelling? Is there a right or wrong place to live? Is any one better than the other?
Were students able to name different places where people can live? Which students are able to accept that homes can be different? Are there any who feel that there is only one right way to live? Did students understand how to read the graph in order to find the results?
