Family Portrait

Have your child get to know members of your family by collecting information and picturing it on a graph.

What you'll need

What to do
1. Choose an inherited family characteristic: hair colors, for example.
2. Count how many people in the family have the different hair colors.
3. Make a graph. For example, if 5 people have brown hair, draw 5 heads side by side to show these five people.
Do the same for the other hair colors.

Graphs help everyone, including adults, understand information at a glance.
By looking at the lengths of the lines of heads, your child can quickly see which hair color, for example, is most common.

PS: Consider doing more fun printable math activities.
