This activity offers a different way to teach tallies and pictographs.


Students choose 20 sweet cards from the sweet deck (or any amount you choose from the 45 cards). We find that 20 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 pictograph. 

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 sweets colours to the name.
