Using line plots (dot plots) in elementary school classrooms is a fairly new practice. Consider how you might use this graphical representation of data with your students. For example, when working with pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students, you might have the students begin with pasting the actual boxes on the charts instead of using dots. How does this compare with your current method of presenting data?
