have a student act
as the Weather
Reporter. The
Weather Reporter

saying, Today is
[day and date]. The
temperature is ____.
Have students make observations about the weather, such as it's hot today. We could go swimming.

discuss their
observations about
their bar graphs.
Prompt them with
questions such as,
Did the temperature
change each day?
If so, did it become
