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! Find out which countries have the most people, beginning with China, India, the United States, Indonesia, and Brazil. Or survey your school’s students and their international heritages. Learn about breads people traditionally bake and eat.
Prepare your bulletin board. What kind of graph could you make to show each country’s population? One way is to create a pictograph. 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 the breads. Model small breads as symbols to represent the population of each country. Decide how many people each piece of bread will represent on your 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.
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. Make a key for your bulletin board, showing how many people each bread represents.
