Brief Description: This lesson plan helps classroom teachers introduce basic Excel skills to

students in elementary and middle school. Students rank their opinions of menu items from fast

food restaurants, add their answers to the spreadsheet, and then create a simple graph of the

results. This lesson takes 1-2 sessions, approximately 30-45 minutes each. *THE TOP THREE

COLLEGES HAVE ALREADY BEEN CHOOSEN IN A PREVIOUS DISCUSSION*

Objectives: Students will be able to…

1. Input data into spreadsheet cells

2. Understand basic spreadsheet terminology

Key Words: Spreadsheet, Data Collection, Data Analysis, Survey, College

Materials Needed:

1. Computer Access

2. Microsoft Excel
COLLEGE PATHWAY SPREADSHEET ACTIVITY 3

Lesson Plan Details:

I will begin by explaining to students that they will learn how to create colorful graphs by adding

data to a computer program called Excel. Each student will watch me on the SMART Board as I

open Excel. I will then demonstrate to students the following three steps:

 Click cell A2, where the words "Teacher's Name" are and type your name instead.

Explain that the box around your name is called a cell, and that the cell you used

is called A2 because it's in column A, row 2.

 Ask students to pick three of their favorite colleges, such as a Bowling Green,

Notre Dame College, The Ohio State University, and only colleges that are in the

state of Ohio. Highlight the words "College #1," "College #2," and "College #3."

Type instead the names of the Colleges they choose.

 Explain to students that I am going to rate the Colleges 3, 2, or 1. A "3" means

they love it; "2" means it's okay; and "1" means NOT! Demonstrate by putting

scores in cells B2, C2, and D2 for each of the food items.

I will call on each student individually and have students call out their evaluations (3, 2, or 1) for

each college. The rest of the class then types each student’s name and score for each college on

their own worksheet. I will walk around to make sure students are putting the information in the

correct cells and making sure that no student is behind. When the spreadsheets are complete, I

will have the students save and print their work. Next, walk through with students four easy steps

of creating a graph for their work. They will be instructed to click Insert > Chart at the top of the

screen then

 Click Next.

4. For Step Four: Click “As New Sheet” and then click Finish.

Each student will then see a graph of the College survey results. Student will then print the

graphs for class work credit.

Assessment:
