## Learning Objectives

Students will be able to practice subtraction by use of a pictograph.

## Lesson

### Introduction (5 minutes)

• Explain to your students that they will be practicing subtraction by using a pictograph, which is a graph using pictures.

### Explicit Instruction/Teacher Modeling (5 minutes)

• Show your students the Books Pictograph worksheet to show them what a pictograph looks like.
• On the board, draw another example of a pictograph. Ask your students to identify their favorite ice cream flavors, and use the flavors as categories for the graph. Draw ice cream scoops as the pictures.

### Guided Practice/Interactive Modeling (10 minutes)

• Pass out the Books Pictograph worksheet to each student.
• Go through each question on the pictograph as a class.

### Independent Working Time (20 minutes)

• Give your students a piece a paper, pencil, and a ruler to create their own pictograph with a partner. Give them ideas, such as asking their neighbors their favorite colors or fruits.
• Ask them to come up with at least three subtraction questions that can be answered by using the pictograph they've created. Point to the questions on the worksheet as a reference.

## Extend

### Differentiation

• Enrichment: Direct your students to work independently. Instruct your students to come up with certain questions related to a specific math concept. For example, one question may be an addition problem. The second may be a subtraction problem, and the third could be a multiplication problem.
• Support: Instead of coming up with the subtraction problems, have your students work on ones created by the other students.

## Review

### Assessment (5 minutes)

• Walk around the room, making sure that students are accurately depicting information on their graphs.

### Review and Closing (5 minutes)

• Have students share their pictographs and questions with the class.
• As an entire class, have your students answer some sample questions.
