Tallies and Graphs
We Love Cookies!

Students placed a sticky note in the column of their favorite type of cookie. After tallying the results, each student shaded in a bar graph to indicate the favorite cookies of their class. We discussed that bar graphs are a quick, efficient, and easy way to compare amounts and numbers. We can immediately see which cookie is the favorite without actually counting one by one. By identifying the column with the most names in it, you can determine the favorite cookie.
