Graphs and Charts
Painting by Numbers
Chart for Chart Sake
Wavy Lines

As kids we love to colour in and this is a great start for understanding charts and graphs. We need a sense of colour, followed on by containment of that colour within objects (i.e. lines or areas). Once we contain that colour we can play with combining colour and numbers (painting by numbers).

These activities will lead nicely to coloured objects then representing values. Once values are represented by areas or lengths or indeed position then we are working with charts and graphs.

Shade in silhouettes and cameo pictures.

Create coloured pictures based on numbers.
