Super Football Infographics

From the Series Super Sports Infographics

  • Interest Level: Grade 3 - Grade 5
  • Reading Level: Grade 4

Keeping up with football’s hard-hitting facts can be as challenging as scoring against a tough defense. You need to take in long distances (the longest field goal in NFL history was 64 yards), huge sizes (the average NFL offensive lineman in 2013 weighed 310 pounds), and incredible details (fans at football games can be loud enough to cause earthquakes).

Infographics make essential concepts about football easy to absorb—from how to throw a spiral to comparing the top players. The “data art” provides opportunities for readers to visually take in information about the sport through charts, diagrams, and illustrations. The vibrant infographics on each spread appeal to struggling readers and help them analyze and interpret football statistics.
