Here’s a really quick idea for a matching activity, totally building off Pip Arnold’s excellent work on shape.

At the bottom of this post are six “Popular times” graphs generated today by Google when searching for the following places of interest:

  1. Cafe
  2. Shopping mall
  3. Library
  4. Swimming pool
  5. Gym
  6. Supermarket

Can you match which graphs go with which places? 🙂
