Picture Graphs & Bar Graphs (Grade 2)
Videos and songs to help Grade 2 students learn to draw a picture
graph and a bar graph (with single-unit scale) to represent a data
set with up to four categories. Solve simple put-together,
take-apart, and compare problems using information presented in
a bar graph.
