Let us learn to represent the information on a picture graph

1. The first step is to collect data.   Example :  Collect this data from your class. Suggest your friends 5 colors and ask them their favorite color. Lets consider 5 colors. Red,  Blue, Green, Yellow and Orange.

2. Make a small table to record this information. With the given information, you can easily make a pictograph. Consider the key as 2. Select a simple picture for the pictograph.

3.  8 students like Red color. According to the key 2 students can be represented using a picture. How many 2’s are in 8. Its 8/2 = 4. Use 4 pictures.7 students like Blue color. Now divide 7 by 2. 7/2 = 3.5 or 3 1/2. So we will use 3 full pictures which represent 6 students and 1 half picture representing 1 student. Similarly you can represent pictures for Green, Yellow, and Orange.


  1.  The most preferred color- Yellow
  2.  The least preferred color- Green
  3.  The total number of students surveyed= 8+ 7+ 4+ 12+ 10 = 41

Here we have prepared worksheets according to the Common core Standards. Worksheets can be used from grade 1 through grade 6.
