Grade 5

Read the Headline Story to the students. Encourage them to think of creative ways to answer the question.

What could this graph represent? Suggest labels for the horizontal and vertical axes.

- There are 3 of something on the vertical axis for every 1 on the horizontal axis; so you could put feet on the vertical axis and yards on the horizontal axis, because there are 3 feet in a yard.
- If the vertical axis was miles and the horizontal axis hours, it could be a graph of someone going 3 miles an hour.
