Lesson objective: Answer questions about a set of data by interpreting a visual representation.

This lesson helps to build procedural skills with interpreting data. A picture graph with organized data is used here because it supports students in focusing on understanding how the data was organized and what they can learn from interpreting the data set. This work also develops students' understanding that data can be collected by answering questions that relate to everyday life.

Students engage in Mathematical Practice 1 (Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them) as they interpret and analyze the picture graph.

**Key vocabulary:**

- data
