## 📊 Practise Matching Bar Graphs and Pictographs

Bar graphs, pictographs, frequency tables … OH MY! Are your students practising how to analyse different types of graphs? As we all know, graphs are an excellent way to display data or information visually. Once your students learn the basics of how to read each type of graph, answering questions and analysing the data will be a breeze! Why not practise matching data to its corresponding chart while having fun? With this resource, students will have experience matching frequency tables with a single-unit bar graph or pictograph.

To play:

1. Place the frequency tables in one pile on the table.
2. Shuffle the bar graph, pictograph, and title cards. Spread them out face-up in the middle of the table.
3. Choose a frequency table and find the matching title and graph.
4. Set the match of 3 cards to the side.
5. Continue until all cards have been matched.

Through this activity, students will show they can interpret bar graphs and pictographs by matching each with a corresponding frequency table.

## Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding

A team of dedicated, experienced educators created this resource to support your maths lessons.

In addition to individual student work time, use this data analysis activity to enhance learning through guided maths groups or whole class lessons.

If you have a mixture of above and below-level learners, check out these suggestions for keeping students on track with the concepts:

### 🆘 Support Struggling Students

Help students who need help understanding the concepts by limiting the number of cards they are required to match. Additionally, students can complete this activity in a 1-on-1 setting or with a small group.

### ➕ Challenge Fast Finishers

For students who may need a bit of a challenge, encourage them to create a dot plot to display the same set of data. Students can draw the charts on either a separate piece of paper or on a whiteboard.

For further extension, challenge your higher-ability students to our Scaled-Interval Graphs Match Up.
