Central Elementary

Mrs. Vollmer's math cluster has been learning about different types of graphs. The class decided to collect data from their fellow students about their favorite kind of pet. The students went to each third grade classroom and surveyed the students about which pet was their favorite. We then brought all the results together, totaled how many votes each type of pet received, and then we decided to make a pictograph.

In order to complete a pictograph, the students had to decided on a key. Their decision was each picture would equal two votes for that animal. Mrs. Vollmer printed out pictures of dogs, birds, cats, snakes, and hamsters and the students went about constructing the pictograph. The pictures show our final product. Students in third grade think that dogs make the best pets!​
