In this infographic from KQED, explore the changes in costs of ingredients for a typical Thanksgiving meal from one year to the next. In the accompanying classroom activity, students consider the advantages and disadvantages of the graphical display used in the infographic. They then create a different graphical display of the infographic data. To get the most from this lesson, students should be comfortable representing data in a variety of ways, such as with bar charts, pie charts, and scatter plots. Some familiarity with percent and proportion is helpful. This resource is part of the Math at the Core: Middle School Collection.
