Lesson 2: Pictographs

Wrapping Up

Conclusion

Materials: fine point dry-erase marker (kit), whiteboard (kit)
Give your child the whiteboard and a dry-erase marker, and provide time for her to create a pictograph that shows data of her choosing. This data may be real or imaginary. Explain to her that she must create a title and a scale for her graph. How many will each picture represent? The goal here is for her to practice using a scale to create a pictograph. When she's finished with her graph, she should be able to tell you what it shows and what the scale is (what each picture equals).
