I love using this worksheet photocopied to A3 as a group work activity to encourage debate and discussion about how graphs can be misleading. This misleading graphs task makes you utilise the opportunity for great SMSC!
I get learners into groups of fours and give them one graph at a time to discuss and annotate what could be perhaps wrong with the graph and more importantly how it can be improved. In between each misleading graph I get learners to share their ideas with the rest of the group before giving them the next misleading graph. Take a look at some of the other lesson starters on the site or search for some resources using the search field to the right.
