Last Friday we welcomed in our parents and shared with them our projects on our researched religions. Students had to learn about their religion and come up with a project to teach about it. They wrote lesson plans, practiced their teaching and showed their knowledge. It was wonderful to see them so enthusiastic and excited. As I was walking around participating, it was amazing to hear all of the parents share that they learned so much. Thank you students and families for such a successful event!

Hi Students! Stem and Leaf plots are helpful and new for us in grade 5. It is one way to show data in a graphical format. It helps show distribution of the data and helps to visually show any outliers. We have already created circle graphs, bar graphs, and analyzed data to find the minimum, maximum, mean, mode, median and range. This new way to organize data will help you to visually see the data you have organized in a different way.
Stem and Leaf plots steps from the video:
