Young scholars explore methods of written communication. For this Plains Indian lesson, students create pictographs representing everyday modern life after observing the pictographs used by the Plains Indians. Pictograph stories are written on wrinkled brown paper (buffalo hide) for display.
Students understand the there are many types of graphs. In this pictograph lesson, students determine the picture value in a pictograph. Students create a pictograph to diagram the population of Missouri.
Students create pictographs by collecting data and using pictures to represent the data. They practice reading the pictographs and create a pictograph using a spreadsheet. A rubric is included in the lesson to help with the assessment portion.
Eighth graders investigate how pictographs are different from drawings. They examine how pictographs were relevant to Native Americans of the Plains region before making original personal pictographs that tell a story. They make pictographs using brown bags that simulate leather.
Learners examine pictures of pictograph writing by Native American tribes, and discuss why this method of communication was used. They create their own messages with symbols and drawings on pieces of Styrofoam to simulate rock carvings.
In this using pictographs with data instructional activity, 3rd graders read data from a pictograph to answer ten multiple choice questions. Answers can be shown on the screen.
Second graders brainstorm how many ways they can eat an apple. Then using data from an apple survey, 2nd graders complete and analyze an apple pictograph. Students then write invitations to an "Apple Party."
Students participate in diverse cultural activities that lead them to a better understanding of Native American people. They use pictographs to write a story, imagining themselves as tribal members. Students transfer their story to a clay pot using black marker.
Second graders examine how data can be transferred into pictures on a pictograph. They analyze data on a graph about chewing gum, and create a pictograph that illustrates data about their preferences for the taste of bubble gum. Students conduct a taste test of five kinds of bubble gum and graph the results using a pictograph.
Third graders create pictographs using a breakfast cereal. This fun, hands-on activity allows students to use Lucky Charms cereal to create a pictograph. When the activity is through, 3rd graders get to eat their Lucky Charms marshmallows.
Fourth graders investigate the concept of using pictographs as rock art. They examine the discoveries of art made within caves in order to comprehend the culture that painted them. Students write creative stories about the images and create a class book.
In this graphical representation of data and measures of central tendency worksheet, students calculate mean, median, and mode and answer questions related to graphs, tables, and pictographs.
How are bar graphs and pictographs different? As you begin this concept, use these simple graphs to help get learners started with data analysis styles. There is one bar graph and one pictograph, each accompanied by four or five comprehension questions (nine in total). The questions require basic graph-reading skills and don't require any approximating of values. After reviewing the worksheet, consider comparing these two types by graphing a class poll as a bar graph and pictograph. Which one is more effective, according to the class? Could they be used for different purposes?
Investigate pictographs in this math graphing lesson. Young learners color and cut out an ice cream cone that represents their favorite flavor.

This is a great way to introduce beginners to the concept, and can also be used as preparation for the class to create a pictograph of their own. Have each learner decorate a paper doll of themselves and place it on a large graph based on a class poll (i.e. what is your favorite ice cream?). 
For this pictograph problem solving worksheet, students analyze a pictograph of birds seen each day for a week. They use the information on the graph to solve 6 problems.
