Learning Objective: To create own pictogram based on data you have collected. 


This week, you have been learning about pictograms. Today, we would like you to gather your own data and create your own pictogram. For example, you might have some toy dinosaurs at home. Count how many of each kind you have and create a pictogram to represent this. Perhaps you would prefer to use a packet of sweets or a bowl of fruit and count the different colours or types and create a pictogram of that. Or perhaps you would like to go outside and count how many bikes, scooters and pedestrians you see in the park. It really doesn't matter.
