Graphing our favorite Brown Bear characters

For this activity, the children where allocated to one of two groups. They each then decided on which Brown Bear character was their favorite. These where then grouped and sorted, and then recorded on the graph. Doing graphs with younger children is a clear and effective transition from the concrete to the abstract, by the recording of concrete data on to a bar graph. They then had fun reading the graph back to each other, clearly identifying they favorite characters. Note: interestingly, for the older group (3-4yrs) the Brown Bear came out ontop, whereas with the younger group (2-3yrs) the frog was a favorite 🙂
