These family and homeschool activities are designed to complement the Pictographs topic on BrainPOP Jr.

Vote for a Sport

Be active with your child! Create a survey about favorite sports, such as swimming, soccer, basketball, or baseball. Then have your child survey his or her friends about their favorite sport. You may want to review how to record votes using a tally chart. Then create a pictograph to display the information. Afterward, gather the friends together to play the sport that got the most votes!

Take a Walk

Plan a hike or walk with your child. Before your trip, make predictions about what interesting things you might see and create a tally chart to organize the possibilities. Bring the tally chart along on your walk and have your child record what he or she sees. After, analyze the data together. How many birds did you see? How many dogs? How many more squirrels did you see than people? What did you see the most of? The least? Have your child turn the tally chart information into a pictograph and share it with the rest of the family.
