Lesson List


A pictograph uses pictures or symbols to show information.  Every pictograph has a title.  The title tells you what the pictograph is about.

Every pictograph has a Key.  The Key tells you how much the picture is when you count.  This symbol Turtle can stand for 1 turtle.  It could also stand for 2 turtles.  The Key tells us how much the picture or symbol Turtle is when we count. For example:

If the Pictograph Key says 1 symbol = 1,

then three symbols Turtle Turtle Turtle would equal 3 (1+1+1=3).

If the Pictograph Key says 1 symbol = 2,

then three symbols Turtle Turtle Turtlewould equal 6 (2+2+2=6).

It is very important to look at the Pictograph Key before we begin counting so that we get the correct answer.

Look at the Pictograph below and answer the questions.  Don't forget to look at the Key before counting!
