# Data Disaster at the Farm - Game

Description

Are you looking for a fun and engaging activity for your students to practise collecting data and making graphs? This gorgeous board game requires students to move around the game board and round up the animals that have escaped from the barn. As they land on each different animal, students will use counters to mark their data on the accompanying bar graph.

The game can be played with 2-4 players. Each group needs one game board as well as individual copies of the graphing page. Print and laminate or keep in write and wipe sleeves for repeated use in rotations.
