Human Box and Whisker Graphs

Students in Mrs. Hatch's 6th Grade Math class explored box and whisker graphs using their bodies. Students were given numbers and aligned themselves in order from least to greatest. Then they found the student who was the "Median" of the number set, the Lower Quartile, Upper Quartile and then "BOXED" themselves in using string. We then decided who was the Lower Extreme and Upper Extreme and gave them a Whisker. Students discussed how to find the Range and Inner Quartile Range. Students did an excellent job of creating and analyzing the graph.
