Drink Survey Project
1. Following the directions given, complete the Drink Survey table.

2. Instruct the students to construct a bar graph on the worksheet provided. Advise each group to make bars
2 squares wide, and use markers to color each bar a d ifferent color.

3. On a half-sheet of 1- inch grid chart paper, create a bar graph by cutting apart one group member’s
colored strips.

4. Select another student’s graph to be cut apart to create the circle graph.

5. Cut the 2-inch wide bars one inch longer than the total for each category.

6. Tape the strips together with the colored sections touching; making sure the colored sections meet with
no white tab showing and no color overlapping.

7. Fold the new multi-colored strip in half lengthwise. Fold so that the co lored part is on the outside.

8. Bring the ends together lapping the colored end over the uncolored tab. Tape to form a circle.

9. Estimate the diameter of the circle. (This can be done by using the circumference formula or by dividing
the length of the strip by three.)

10. Tape the circle on the top of the 1- inch grid chart paper.

11. Mark the center of the circle and the places on the circumference where the color of the bars changes.
Connect the center to each of the marks on the circumference. Color each section the same color as the
corresponding bar.

12. Label each part of the circle graph with the fraction and percent.

Drink Survey Project

Objective: Use survey data to construct a table, a bar graph, and a circle graph in order to compare how the
data is displayed.

Situation: Mrs. Fizz surveyed her class about their favorite soft drinks. The survey showed that four students
like Root Beer, two students like Sprite, eight students like Dr. Pepper and six students like Coke.

Based on this information, complete the table below.

Observations and Questions

1.   Write an observation (complete sentences) about the drink choices of the students in Mrs. Fizz’s class.

2. Describe how your observation from question #1 can be seen in your data table.

3. Describe how your observation from question #1 can be seen in your bar graph.

4. Describe how your observation from question #1 can be seen in your circle graph.

5. Write one question you could ask the students in your class that can be answered using the information

Part II: Follow-up Activity
Favorite Color Survey
Mrs. Rainbow surveyed her class about their favorite colors. The survey showed that four students like RED,
six students like GREEN, seven students like BLUE and three students like YELLOW.
Based on this information, study the table below. Mrs. Rainbow was very tired when she made this answer key.
There are 4 mistakes in the table. Cross out each mistake and replace it with the correct answer.
