Motivation: Sing a song for the months of the year
Delivery: Take a survey using tally marks of everyone’s birthday. Make a title for the pictograph. Write down the months of the year vertically. Draw a picture next to the months, depending on how many birthdays there are. Continue for all twelve months. Make a key at the bottom of the pictograph. Ex: 1 picture equals 1 student.
Follow Up: Read the pictograph data. Ex: How many students have a birthday in March? Students can write their own questions from the data. Students can pair up with a partner to answer the questions. In their Math Journal, students can answer questions such as: What did I do? How did I do it? What did I learn?
