Line Plots 2nd Grade Worksheets

Common Core

  • Generate measurement data by measuring lengths of several objects to the nearest whole unit, or by making repeated measurements of the same object.
  • Show the measurements by making a line plot, where the horizontal scale is marked off in whole-number units.

What is a Line Plot?

A line plot is a visual way of recording data values.

In a line plot, the data is displayed as points, or check marks, above a number line.

Example Line Plot showing children's ages at a tennis club.

line plot example image

The line plot above, shows the ages of a group of children playing at a tennis club.

Using a line plot, we can clearly see:

  • how the data is distributed between the ages of 6 to 11.
  • which the most and least common ages are
  • the number of children in the club by counting the check marks

One of the advantages of using a line plot, rather than a bar graph or line graph, is the speed and ease at which they can be created.

Line Plot 2nd Grade Worksheets

These sheets have been created for students around 2nd grade level.

All the worksheets involve creating and analysing different line plots.

In the answer sheets, we have used a 'X' symbol for the data. However a range of different symbols can be used - a common alternative is small circles.

We have split our 2nd grade line plots worksheets into two sections.

  • The first section is all about creating line plots from sets of data.
  • The second section is all about interpreting line plots.

Creating Line Plots Worksheets 2nd Grade

The data has already been prepared in most of the worksheets and just needs to be put into the line plot.

Sheets 1 to 4 all involve using pre-prepared data to create line plots.

Sheet 5 involves measuring different line lengths and recording the results in a line plot.

Interpreting Line Plots Worksheets 2nd Grade

Both these sheets involve looking at different line plots and answering a range of questions about the data they show.
