# Reading picture graphs

CCSS.Math:

Interpret picture graphs (pictographs) to answer single-step questions about a context.

### Reading picture graphs

Picture graphs use pictures or symbols to represent data. Let's look at the picture graph below.

Hopper the rabbit and her friends are collecting carrots. They made a picture graph to show how many carrots each of them collected.

Each

represents start color #1fab54, 3, end color #1fab54 carrots collected by the rabbits. Since Hopper has start color #11accd, 4, end color #11accd

above her name in the picture graph, we can multiply to find out how many carrots she collected.

Hopper collected 12 carrots.

We can follow the same steps to find how many carrots each of Hopper's friends collected.

### Example 1: Flowers

John graphed the number of flowers he planted in his garden.

### Example 2: Boat captains

Four boat captains, Ron, Dora, Jess, and Mark made a graph of the number of whales they saw while at sea last month.

### Example 3: Creating a picture graph then reading it

Alyssa counts sheep to help her go to sleep. She made a table of how many sheep she counted over the past four days.

Day | Number of sheep counted |
---|---|

Monday | 18 |

Tuesday | 12 |

Wednesday | 14 |

Thursday | 10 |

Now that we have created our picture graph, let's answer some questions.
