Batter Up!: Activities

Activity 8

Creating Bar Graphs Baseball Style

Objective of the Lesson
Students will use their research skills to find stadium seating capacities of the MLB Teams. This information will be gathered and used to create bar graphs. Students will use their graphs to compare numerical and pictorial data.

Materials Needed

Lesson Plan Procedure

  1. Access the Internet using your Web Browser.

  2. Demonstrate the use of OPEN to access web sites for which addresses are already known. This step may be eliminated if students are familiar with OPEN  or if you will be doing the accessing of sites as a large audience/class activity.

  3. If students have the ability to gather this information on their own, have them list the names of the 30 teams.  Then search and write the stadium name and seating capacity of each stadium found.

  4. Using the information gathered, assist the students in creating bar graphs. Younger students may choose to create a classroom pictograph using only the data from a few teams. Older students may create individual graphs comparing American League stadiums to National League stadiums. BE CREATIVE!

  5. If possible, scan either photos or drawings of your graphs. Computerized/scanned graphs may be saved as gif or jpeg files and sent directly to the BatterUp! Project Coordinator. If scanning cannot be done, the Project Coordinator will accept hard copies of student work.
