Lesson 1: Picture graphs part 1

For example, a picture graph displaying ​the amount of points scored by 5 basketball players could use the image of a basketball to represent 2 points and then display a basketball over each player's name for every 2 points she scored.

• what does pasture and corral mean?
• It's the different places on the farm. Pastures are like fields for cows, horses, and sheep to graze and eat.

The picture graph tells us how many mice there are at each of the places.
• At they said to count the mice in the barn. How much mice is the symbol worth?
• In the top right of the video, there is a key that says 1 mouse symbol corresponds to 1 mouse in real life.
• What is the difference between a picture graph and a pictograph?
• A picture graph uses images of the items being graphed and a pictograph uses symbols to depict the items being graphed.
