Review the size of the Australian Olympic Team from the previous activity (if needed), pointing out the numbers in the table. Ask the class to think about numbers, data and information they might have seen in their everyday life. Introduce the basic idea of using a chart or a graph to represent numbers and data.

Brainstorm the features of a chart or graph as outlined in the following sample: little pictures squares grid horizontal axis title Graph features labels numbers at the side years scale numbers Distribute student handout. Discuss each of the features of the graph, explaining the importance of each. Work with the class to finish labelling the graph by adding numbers to the horizontal axis (year) and vertical axis (number of athletes) of the graph. Analyse the data in the table. Work with the class to translate the data to the graph, using a small cross for each point. Join the points together with a line and discuss. Use art materials to add colour to the graph.

4 REFLECT ON a.s.p.i.r.e. VALUES Discuss how the a.s.p.i.r.e. values relate to other contexts and situations, such as various Olympic sporting situations.
