This FREEBIE includes 10 data collection cards containing a variety of pictures. Students can decide how to sort the data (by color, size, or another form of variation) in order to develop and draw their own tally chart, bar graph, or pictograph as appropriate.
These cards can be cut and laminated as a center activity for students to practice their graphing skills. As an alternative, you can pair students to work in small groups to create a graph that represents the data. As an extension, you can ask for students to create questions based on the data collection card, pass the graph and questions that they created to a peer, and ask for the peer to answer the questions based on the graph that they created!
