- Compare, sort, and organize real objects into concrete graphs.
- Use symbols to create pictographs.
- Read graphs and talk about the information on the graphs.
- Ask questions, collect data, and record the data.
You can help your child reach these goals through the following activities:
- Ask your child to sort some things into 2 sets. Help them to line up the sets to match each object in 1 set with an object in the other set.
- Have your child ask family members to name their favourite vegetables, and then create a similar graph using matching hand-drawn pictures.
- Have your child a question of the family, such as: “Do you like snow?” Have your child record the answers of up to 10 family members or friends using tallies or checkmarks.
- Have your child ask up to 10 family members or friends a question, such as: “Do you like to skate, swim, or ride bikes?” Together, record the results in a chart.
- Have your child collect data about how many letters are in the names of family members or other people they know.
