Description
Graphs and statistics make an excellent information-gap exercise for students.

Students need to work with a partner - or with the teacher. Students need to explain their graphs to a partner, who then draws it in the blank graph space.

The target language includes increase, decrease, rise and fall.

For more confident students, you can introduce adverbs such as dramatically and steadily.

This worksheet is for lower-intermediate and above.

All our graph-related worksheets can be found here.
