Read and Interpret Line Graphs Lesson

This Year 6 Read and Interpret Line Graphs lesson covers the prior learning of reading and interpreting line graphs which may involve estimating of values, before moving onto the main skill of reading line graphs accurately and interpreting more than one set of data on a graph.

The lesson starts with a prior learning worksheet to check pupils’ understanding. If they need more practice, you can choose other resources for the step here. The interactive lesson slides recap the prior learning before moving on to the main skill. Children can then practise further by completing the activities and can extend their learning by completing an engaging extension task.
