Core Standards
The core standards covered in this lesson
2.MD.D.10— Draw a picture graph and a bar graph (with singleunit scale) to represent a data set with up to four categories. Solve simple puttogether, takeapart, and compare problems using information presented in a bar graph.
Measurement and Data

Foundational Standards
The foundational standards covered in this lesson
1.MD.C.4
Measurement and Data
1.MD.C.4— Organize, represent, and interpret data with up to three categories; ask and answer questions about the total number of data points, how many in each category, and how many more or less are in one category than in another.
K.MD.B.3
Measurement and Data
K.MD.B.3— Classify objects into given categories; count the numbers of objects in each category and sort the categories by count.Limit category counts to be less than or equal to 10.
1.OA.A.1
Operations and Algebraic Thinking
1.OA.A.1— Use addition and subtraction within 20 to solve word problems involving situations of adding to, taking from, putting together, taking apart, and comparing, with unknowns in all positions, e.g., by using objects, drawings, and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
1.OA.A.2
Operations and Algebraic Thinking
1.OA.A.2— Solve word problems that call for addition of three whole numbers whose sum is less than or equal to 20, e.g., by using objects, drawings, and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
Criteria for Success
The essential concepts students need to demonstrate or understand to achieve the lesson objective
 Collect, read,and organize categorical data in a table or tally chart.
 Understand the purpose of a picture graph as a way to represent a data set to be able to see trends and analyze it more easily.
 Represent data in a picture graph in which each picture represents one object/vote.
 Understand that a key is a part of a graph that explains the meaning and/or value of the symbols in a graph.
 Include all necessary labels in a drawn picture graph, including:
 title
 category labels
 key
 Make observations and inferences of the data represented in a picture graph.
 Answer simple puttogether, takeapart, and compare problems using information presented in a picture graph.
Tips for Teachers
Suggestions for teachers to help them teach this lesson
As per the standard language in 2.MD.D.10, when working with picture graphs, students will be working with a single unit scale. So for the examples students should have exposure to in this unit, there will be a one for one scale.

Problem 2
At the end of the year, Ms. Jackson’s class goes on a field trip to the local zoo. As they walk through the zoo, the students keep track of the number of animals they see in different habitats. Their observations are shown in the table. An incomplete picture graph is shown below.


a.Complete the picture graph.
b.How many animals did the students see at the zoo in all?
c.How many of the animals they saw lived in a water or rain forest habitat?
d.How many more forest animals did they see than desert animals?
