See the world in a new way--with the breads people eat. Explore cultural attributes and world populations with a pictograph bulletin board.
Explore the world! Students find out which countries are represented in their own schools. Invite children to write an original survey for their school’s students and their international heritages. Learn about breads people traditionally bake and eat.
Students gather survey data and designate a classroom or hallway bulletin board to repor their findings. What kind of graph could be made to show each country’s population? One way is to create a pictograph. Ask students to cut colorful paper with Crayola® Scissors to cover a bulletin board. On construction paper, use Crayola Gel Markers to create a colorful border and write each country's name. Attach country labels with a Crayola Glue Stick.
Model small breads as symbols to represent the population of each country. Decide how many people each piece of bread will represent on the pictograph. Use Model Magic to form miniature loaves, rolls, tortillas, or other breads. To create different colors of dough, knead washable marker colors into Model Magic to blend. Roll modeling compound between palms, flatten with fingers, cut, and press with a craft stick to create different textures. Air-dry pieces for 24 hours.
Students assemble the chart. Stick pieces of hook and loop fastener tape on the back of each bread. Press matching sticky pieces in strips to the right of each country's label on your bulletin board. Stick on the breads. Students make a key for the bulletin board, showing how many people each bread represents.
