# Max Maths, Year 2, Learn together, Making pictograms (4)

In a Year 2 maths lesson from the Max Maths series, children are introduced to the concept of making pictograms as a form of data representation. The focus of this particular activity is to represent the colours of flowers in a garden using pictograms. Each symbol in the pictogram represents one flower, and children are tasked with drawing the appropriate number of symbols to correspond with the number of flowers of each colour. This visual method of displaying information helps young learners to understand and interpret data in a simple and engaging way.

The activity provides a list of flower colours—red, yellow, pink, and white—and requires the pupils to draw symbols next to each colour to indicate the number of flowers present in the garden. For example, if there are 237 red flowers, the students would draw 237 symbols to represent each red flower. This exercise not only teaches children about pictograms but also reinforces counting and number representation in a practical context. The activity is designed to be interactive and fun, encouraging children to learn together while they develop their understanding of basic data handling.
