# Picture Graphs & Bar Graphs (Grade 3)

Videos and lessons to help Grade 3 students learn to draw a scaled picture graph and a scaled bar graph to represent a data set with several categories. Solve one- and two-step “how many more” and “how many less” problems using information presented in scaled bar graphs. For example, draw a bar graph in which each square in the bar graph might represent 5 pets.

Common Core: 3.MD.3

### Suggested Learning Targets

• I can make a scaled picture graph or bar graph with several categories to represent data (e.g., one square or picture represents 5 objects).
• I can read and interpret scaled bar graphs in order to solve one- and two-step "how many more" and "how many less" problems.
