Grade 4 Line Graphing

  • Title the file 'your name Fitness Test', for example, Kathy Fitness Test
  • Place a title at the top of the sheet along with you name and class
  • Recreate the hard copy of your test in a Google sheet but do not include your name or grade the way it is on the hard copy
  • Input all data as written
