# 2-2-2 Pictograph Counting

### Lesson List

A pictograph is a graph that uses pictures called symbols to show information.  Every pictograph has a title.  The title tells you what the pictograph is about.

Every pictograph has a Key. The Key tells you how much the symbol is when you count.  This symbol can stand for 1 turtle.  It could also stand for 2 turtles.  It might even stand for 5 turtles.  The Key tells us how much the picture symbol is when we count.  For example:

If the Pictograph Key says 1 symbol = 1,

then three symbols would equal 3 (1+1+1=3).

If the Pictograph Key says 1 symbol = 2,

then three symbols  would equal 6 (2+2+2=6).

If the Pictograph Key says 1 symbol = 5, then five symbols

would equal 25 (5+5+5+5+5=25).

It is very important to look at the Pictograph Key before we begin counting so that we get the correct answer.

Look at the Pictograph below and answer the questions.  Don't forget to look at the Key before counting!
