Sweets/Candy Pictographs


This graphs activity is a different way to teach tally and pictographs. Students choose 20 sweet cards from the sweet deck (or any amount you choose from the 45 cards). We recommend that 20 cards offers the most interesting collection to work with.

Students are invited to collect the data of their chosen cards and write it on the tally sheet. Finally, the students will then plot it on a pictograph. Three pictograph sheets are included, one that has a key of one image = one sweet, one of one image = 2 sweets, and a final one where students can input their own ratio of image to sweets.

The nature of this activity means that each student should, in theory, produce their own tally and bar graph, unique from other students in the class.

We have also included differentiated versions of the worksheets themselves for those who need a little help with matching the sweets colours to the name.

Included in this pack are the UK and the US versions to take into account different terminology and spellings.
