Exercise 1 (age 5): I presented Benny with a pictogram. The X axis had a picture of him, his mama, and myself. the Y axis had numbers. And the pictures were cookies (something Benny cares about). I asked him how many cookies each person had. I asked who had the most cookies. Then I traced the number of cookies to the numbers on the Y axis.
Results: Great. He got the idea.
Exercise 2 (age 5): I presented Benny with a bar chart similar to the histogram, and with the same numbers and asked him similar questions. Later, I added to the bars and asked him similar questions.
Results: He needed a little more help than with the pictogram. However, he learned to trace over to the left to figure out how many cookies each person had. By the time I added more size to the bars, he knew how to answer the questions correctly with the new amounts.
