UK and US Version Worksheets and Teacher Notes
This is a fun lesson and an opportunity for students to revise data handling with heart glyphs, so it is suitable for St. Valentines Day.
This resource relates to counting and collecting data, completing a tally chart, making a pictogram/picture graph and completing a block graph.
Content and description:
Favorite Color Hearts:
• Worksheet A – Students complete the tally chart by counting the hearts shown below the tally chart.
• Worksheet B – Cut and glue activity.
Students use the data from the tally chart to color in the hearts. Then they cut out the hearts and glue onto the pictogram worksheet to produce a pictogram. Students then give the pictogram/picture graph a title.
• Worksheet C – Students answer questions relating to the pictogram/tally chart. (9 questions and color the heart in their favorite color)
• Extra work – Block Graph Worksheet. Students complete the graph with the same data used for the pictogram/picture graph above.
If some students get as far as the block graph worksheet, remind them that when they shade/colour in, that one block represents one heart a child has coloured in.
Students that require support
Also included for hands-on activity:
- Whole page blank A4 Tally Chart
- Whole page blank A4 Pictogram
- Sheet of color hearts to laminate and cut out
Print off and laminate the A4 size blank tally chart.
Print off and laminate the A4 size pictogram/picture graph.
Print off a sheet of hearts, laminate and cut out the hearts.
You will need Velcro, sticky back tape or blu tac to temporarily attach and remove the laminated hearts as a teaching manipulative.
The students will be doing the same tasks as on the worksheets but 'hands-on', so read out Worksheet A and then say they will be working out the same problem but using whole page size laminated templates, dry-wipe pens and Velcro/blu tack.
You can support the students by getting them to count the hearts and sort them and then place them on the laminated tally chart with Velcro or blu tac.
- Students then practice writing tally marks and adding them up.
- Students can now complete the laminated pictogram by placing the different color hearts in the correct column. You may want to print off another sheet of heart colors for the students to place on the blank pictogram template.
- Remind the students that the pictogram needs a key.
- You can then ask questions about the pictogram using Worksheet C.
