This activity offers a different way to teach tallies and bar graphs. ︎Students choose firework cards from the ︎firework deck ︎(or any amount you choose from the ︎45 cards︎). We ︎find that 20︎ cards offers the most interesting collection to work with.

︎Students are invited to collect the data of their chosen cards and write it on the tally sheet. ︎Finally, the students will then plot it on a bar graph.  The nature of this activity means that each student should, in theory,  produce their own tally and bar graph, unique from other students in the group.

We have also included differentiated versions of the worksheets themselves for those who need
a little help with matching the fi︎reworks to the value they need to tally.
