Yesterday, you had a go at drawing pictograms and analysing these (answering questions)


Today, we are going to look at pictograms a little more to make sure we understand them. 


Have a look at the Pictogram below. 

Answer the questions.  You may need to complete parts of the pictogram (use the questions to help you).

Understanding Pictograms


What is the pictogram about?

What does one smiley face represent? Where can we find out?

How many children chose apples as their favourite fruit? How do you know?

Can you use the pictogram to fill in the total for oranges and plums?

Which fruit is the most popular?

Which fruit did the fewest children choose?

How many children chose oranges?

Which fruit would you have chosen?
