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).

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