At my school we have PE awards for kids that are physically fit. I want to win the Presidential Physical Fitness Award.

When I run, I fly like the wind!

Sit-ups. . .   no problem!

I can throw a ball out of sight!

I wish I could do push-ups, then I would win the award.

Exercising is hard work.  I want to be able to see that I am improving.

Plotting   the number of push-ups I do each day on a graph, and then connecting the points with a line will make it easy for me to see my progress.

  A line graph like this one will help me watch my progress.





       If I train and practice, I’m sure I will get stronger and win my award. I’m going to do push-ups every day for a week to see if I can improve.

    Will you help me build a line graph to show how strong I'm getting?

     On Sunday I did four push-ups. Click  Sunday on the graph and watch the first point appear.

     Monday I felt strong and did ten push-ups. Click Monday to add this point to the graph.

     Boy, was I sore from all those push-ups.   Help me place the point for Tuesday when I could only do five push-ups. Find Tuesday on the graph. Now go up the scale to 5 and click to place the point correctly.
