Big Ideas: Data and graphs can be analyzed for information. We can create a bar or a picture graph to represent data. In this task, students will create a picture graph using data from tally charts. Students will choose an appropriate number for the picture to symbolize to best represent the data. Labels and titles will also reflect the meaning of the data presented in the graph. Understanding the parts of a picture graph is the first step to analyzing the presented data while asking and answering question about it. Making comparisons between groups of data support conclusions students make about it. Interpreting the data from a picture graph is essential foundation to being able to answer one and two step question problems. Vocabulary: picture graph, data, data table, key Special Materials: cm grid paper Optional: small stamps or stickers colored pencils, crayons, or markers
