In this tally chart worksheet, students will read about tally charts and their uses. Students will make a list of when and why they could make a tally chart. Next students will complete a tally chart and write statements about the information. Finally, students will create their own tally chat.
Help kids understand how to collect data through surveys, organize data in a bar chart, then analyze their findings. There are three different surveys for learners to conduct, a full description of all the parts of a bar chart, and three pre-made tally charts to use. Note: The survey topics may need to be updated or altered to fit your classroom community.
As learners explore data analysis have them practice reading tally charts using these examples. They answer basic questions about each of three charts, employing addition and subtraction skills. For example, a chart tallying t-shirts sold in various colors asks how many shirts were "sold in all" and "how many more green shirts were sold than white shirts." Once learners finish, they can create tally charts of their own and create questions for a classmate to answer.
