    I plan to use the olympics to incorporate a graphing theme with my class. We have went over the basic parts of each type of graph and as the olympic events wind down, I am going to use the internet and have the kids research the number of countries who won medals, etc. Choose five countries and make a pie chart to show how won what percentage of the total medals, choose five countries and make a bar graph to show how many medals they won, use the USA medal totals to make a line graph of medals won in each event. My kids were interested in the olympics. Maybe you could even record some events on tape and have them watch them and then make a graph of the data.
