The aim of this study is to examine the graphic reading, interpretation and drawing skills ofpre-service Science teachers. Descriptive survey model was used in the research. The universe of the study consists of pre-service science teachers studying at the Faculty of Education, and the sample consists of 62 science teacher candidates who studied in the 4th grade and took the courses "General Biology 1 and 2" and "General Biology Laboratory 1 and 2". A test consisting of two parts was used as a data collection tool in the study. In the first part of the test, 15 questions prepared as multiple choice were directed to prospective teachers. It was aimed to measure the ability of teacher candidates to read and interpret graphics with existing questions. In the second part of the test consisting of two questions, the graph drawing skills of the teacher candidates were measured. In addition, the opinions of the preservice teachers about graphic reading, interpretation and drawing were taken. As a result of the research, it was seen that the teacher candidates had problems in reading, interpreting and drawing graphics. In order to correct this, it is recommended to conduct experimental studies related to graphic reading and interpretation processes, to examine the existing deficiencies in more depth and to expand the solution proposals with these studies.
