Reading and Creating Histograms Worksheet

Histograms are a useful tool for visualising data in a way that helps students understand patterns and trends. In primary school, introducing histograms can be simplified to make them accessible and engaging for young learners.

Use this double-sided histograms worksheet to give students the opportunity to both interpret histograms, and create histograms to represent a given data set. 

This worksheet uses simple, real-life scenarios (such as fuel used by vehicles, and students’ favourite sports).

You may like to use this worksheet as an individual task, or as a whole-class instruction (project onto your smartboard and have students take notes in their books).

To introduce this activity, revisit some graph vocabulary at the start of your lesson, so that students understand key terms like categories, frequency, bars, and axis labels. Encourage them to use these terms when discussing histograms.

This resource uses simple and relatable examples to make the concept of histograms more accessible to young learners. Reinforce the idea that histograms are tools that help us understand data more easily by showing patterns and distributions visually. By incorporating interactive activities and making it enjoyable, you can foster a positive attitude towards data representation and analysis in primary school students.

To make this activity more challenging for fast finishers, edit the worksheet in Google Slides to include more challenging data sets, including scaled intervals. 

Offer students who require additional support additional resources, such as manipulatives to represent the values and assist with understanding representations.
