DD, age 7 and working with Beast Academy 4, has been playing with graphs and charts lately. Any fun supplement type stuff out there that she could use? Something that goes over some basics about data collection and different ways of presenting information would interest her.

I think the most fun way would be to create the graphs yourself as well as collecting the data to use. Doing things like counting the number of each color of M&M's in a package and creating a bar graph would be fun. 

 

There are workbooks that could help you see the different kinds and give you ideas possibly.

If you want to learn more than just her age level so that you can take her beyond in years to come, this might be good.

That Prufrock Press book looks like something she might get into. Thanks!

Link? A google search for Great Graphs turns up many interesting graphs, but probably not what you're referring to. :)

DS has just started learning about graphing. We did the sample graphing exercise from RightStart, which was okay, but he really enjoyed making his own that tied into our Continents & Cultures study (we graphed the number of countries per continent). Aren't you doing Cultural Geography? You could pull lots of interesting ideas from that to graph! Exports, languages spoken, religions practiced... You could discuss different types (bar, line, pie, etc) which is best to use when, & why. Where to start & cap your values. How the scale chosen for each axis can make data seem more similar or different. What an "outlier" is...

You can also make a cool infographic with easel.ly . They have a few templates with the free version.  My son is playing with it right now!

Halloween is around the corner, and my kids enjoyed graphing the distribution of candies they received, making a pie chart, etc.  (25% Snickers, 10% Tootsie Rolls, etc.)
