Here are some tips for Bar Graphs, which aligns with Florida state standards:

**Bar Graphs**

A bar graph is one way to organize data.

The bars represent the data - the longer the bar, the larger the value of the data.

The bars in a vertical bar graph go up. |
The bars in a horizontal bar graph go across. |

Pay attention to the **scale** of bar graphs.

The scale tells you the value of the length of the bars.
