Students will make a pictograph using Excel. Students can choose anything they like to play, eat or do. They would then do a survey of their class on what their favorite candies are - snickers, Twizzlers, M&M's, etc... They will take those votes and record that information into the Excel document. They can change the font, size and color. Highlight the candy and votes, then click on "Chart" Leave it selected on column chart and select "next". Change the series to "Rows" and select "next". Type in the chart title and click finish. Add the candy pictures to the columns. Double-click one of the bars, and select the "Fill Effects" button (on the Patterns tab). On the Picture tab, click "Select Picture", and then press OK. You now have a picture in your chart & have a picture embedded into Excel. There is a pictograph on all three sheets.
