Big Ideas: A picture graph represents data. Asking and answering questions about data in a picture graph helps us to understand the information. There are various ways to solve a one and two-step word problems. I can solve two-step word problems using “how many more” and “how many less” using the graph. In this lesson, students will analyze picture graphs and answer a variety of questions about the data the graph represents. The questions cover reference questions, one-step questions, two-step questions, and whole picture questions. Students support their answers with evidence from the graph and their own mathematical thinking. Special Materials: Optional Students created picture graphs and questions in the last lesson. Pair students to swap graphs and question. Each student completes their partners' questions. Students should use their partner for clarification when needed.
