This idea is perfect if you need a quick graph of classroom data from a question you ask your students. You will not actually be creating a formal graph...your spreadsheet will just look like one!
I've added five columns for categories and placed 23 spaces in each column. If you have more students, you can add rows.
Next, replace the categories with items you are collecting data on. (I forgot to do this when taking screenshots!)
You could either have students individually color a cell for their vote or ask for a raise of hands for each category.
Tap on the number 1 cell for the category and tap and pull up on the left-hand circle. Pull up until you have selected the number you need.
Tap the paint bucket and switch to fill color. Select the color you want.
Repeat until all the categories have been completed.
Now you have a quick graph of data that you can project and have a class discussion about!
