As an activity to learn about tally charts, I first ask my class a question with 3 answers and tally them. We then create a tally chart together of the data and talk about the parts that make up the chart. I then have my students develop a question to ask their classmates and then survey their peers, tallying their answers. This is an interactive Smartboard activity that introduces and guides the lesson.
-Interactive poll to survey the class
-Scaffolding for how to create a tally chart from data
-Guidelines for practicing the activity with peers
