Weekly Reader Connections

Teacher Guide: Unit 3

The Weekly Reader Connections feature on Kids' Place Houghton Mifflin Math provides your students with additional information about the topics that appear in the Curriculum Connection feature in their student books.

The article “Playing by the Rules?” discusses an increase in fights at children's sporting events. The article includes a bar graph showing how many U.S. children play four different sports. Have students read the article on their own and then complete the Word Wise activity.

The Data Hunt activity presents students with three multiple-choice questions about information found in the bar graph.
