I'm looking for a blank grid that I can have my ds chart the temperature each day-- like a line graph- anyone know where I can find such a thing? I suppose I could draw one up- but it would be easier if there was already one made! lol

I think I have one. Let me see if I can figure out where I found it, though. :)

ETA: Well, :eyes: I couldn't find it.

I guess "in the back of the Right Start Level C book" isn't what you're looking for.

It would be easy enough to make that graph or have him make it with a ruler and a piece of graph paper.

You could get bigger graph paper if he needs that visual discrimination.

You can buy tablets of graph paper at office supply stores. They're not very expensive. We always have them on hand; in fact, Laura often prefers to do her math on that paper.

With some blank graph paper, run the temperture up the side, and the days of the month along the bottom. Then have him fill in each day's temperature like a bar graph.

Make one page for each month and you will have a nice looking graph when you are finished. You can then compare from month to month, find ave. temp., etc.

:yes: or you can still do the line graph with that method. Graph construction is a great skill for a 10yo to master!!

If you need tips I'm an expert at teaching them!

We have a lap-size white board that is printed on one side with a grid of 1/2" squares for graphing. It's got heavy center lines to make the 4 quadrants, but that doesn't interfere with making other types of graphs on it. I ordered it from Rainbow Resources a few years ago.

I downloaded graph paper from this site and then I just print what I need. I've done many temperature graphs with my older three (I love temperature graphs!).

Saxon Meeting Books have a temperature graph in them. (2nd grade one anyway).. It's no good to us (the meeting book) because um the temperature graph is in F and we go with C. I'd you'd like the book let me know.. It needs a new home. :)

I couldn't find a blank chart, but Enchanted Learning has a whole bunch of temperature & thermometer activities.
