Graphing Assignment


You are going to be constructing a graph that will show the sizes of the nine planets.  Using the Excel program or the Chart in Microsoft Word, enter the name of each planet and its size.  Find this information as you do the WebQuest. To find the size of each planet, click on The Facts section under each individual planet; this information may also be one of the 5 facts you need to find for your diary.  You should make one of the following graphs:

1.    Column

2.  Bar

3.  Cylinder

4.  Pie

5.  Pyramid

6.  Cone



Make sure that each planet is named next to its position on the graph.  Print a copy of the graph, and save a copy to a disk.
