This month we have been exploring the ways weather matters to farmers. Some of you have also been collecting data about the weather in your area. We asked a few questions about March and now we can use this data to find the answers. But just looking at a list of numbers may not be the easiest way to learn anything!
That is why we need a graph. Graphs are a way to take data and make them into something like a picture. This makes them easy to understand!
The first thing you need to do is decide what data to put in a graph. I am choosing to put two kinds of data in my chart; lion days and lamb days.
I used a program on my computer to draw this pie graph. Its called a pie graph because you slice a circle into pieces to show data. When I look at this graph I can see easily there were more lamb days than lion!
