Revisiting graphs

On my recent professional experience with a year 5 class I was given the task of revisiting how to collect data and create graphs with the students and wanted to find a way to do it without the use of just the whiteboard and their maths books. I found this cool online resource that allows the students to plug in their own data (we did a class survey in the previous lesson) and select a type of graph to use and in turn correctly format and label each part of that graph in order to practice generating their own graphs. This was a fun lead in to the students using their maths books to design their own graphs the old fashioned way. So they had a chance to design both ways.
