Create A Graph

Create a Graph is perfect for those quick lessons with your students, but don’t have days to teach them how to use a spreadsheet and enter the data into a spreadsheet. This website takes each step and breaks it down into tabs. Work through the tabs and end up with usable graph perfect for any presentation. To get started, go to http://nces.ed.gov/nceskids/createagraph/

Once there, click on the desired graph. Enter in the information on each of the tabs: Design, Data, Labels, Preview and Print/Save.

The design your graph tab allows you to choose the style of the different aspects of the chosen graph along with color, appearance, etc.
The data tab is easy to read and input the desired data for the graph.

The label tab provides more customizations to the labels: color, background, text, font, etc.
The preview tab allows you to see exactly what your graph looks like before you print, and will update automatically if changes are made in the previous tabs.

Thank you Brandy Whitley for sharing!
