      Great Challenge Lesson
      By bethb on 04/19/2012 - 14:05
    • This lesson works with back to back stem and leaf plots which may be to challenging for 3rd and 4th graders. However this is a great activity for 6th graders and to challenge 5th graders that have already mastered the standand stem and leaf plot.
