Just when you think they get it...

My class has been working on graphing all sorts of information for weeks. We would vote on our favortie cereals, tv shows, games. Each time we took a poll, we would convert the information into a graph. I felt confident that they all understood the idea that information could be shown in this form.

Teacher: Using a picture I would like you to show me the following information. I asked my class what they liked better....hamburgers or ice cream. Fifteen said they liked hamburgers better. Ten said they liked ice cream better. How could you show me this in a picture?

Little girl raised her hand confidently: You want us to giraffe it?
