Students learn more about Picture Graphs, what they are and how to make one. We discuss what the purpose of a graph like this is and how it helps us.
On interactive whiteboard, view a picture graph example and discuss how this can be used to help us compare the number of different things.
Vote as a class on what their favourite pet is between cat and dog. This information can then be tallied and a picture graph created using j2e.com pictogram template (for example)

Activity: As a class, look at the J2E picture graph link on the reception class’ desktop.
Give an example of a picture graph – use the favourite pets example already tallied.
- In J2E, select “Pets”, then show how to increase/decrease the tally.
- Show how to save “as PDF” after clicking the Printer icon. This will allow students to save a copy of what they’ve created. Just save it into the class folder with their name for now.
