2nd Class Maths Activities

2nd Class recently engaged in the Maths strand of Data. They explored many types of graphs including pictograms and bar graphs.

Firstly, they explored their birthday months and made a whole class pictogram.

Secondly, they investigated the variety of colours in packets of skittles and how they vary in each packet. Then, they plotted their findings in a bar graph. 

They had a great few mornings of maths with a fun twist.
