Happy Birthday Pictogram!

Today Mrs. Ranney showed us a terrific graphing site.

We looked at the birthdays in the classroom using a birthday pictogram.

(Click the picture to make it larger.)

(We took a screen shot by pressing COMMAND + SHIFT + 4)

Then we made up  questions!

How many girls are there?
How many boys are there?

What month has the most birthdays?

The answers are 13 girls, 13 boys, and July!

    @Hayley, you came up with some great questions and used correct capitals, periods, and question marks too!
