I love being an only child. My mom and dad do lots of things with me. We have a great family, just the three of us.

 Then my parents had a baby. Now there are four of us. My parents spend a lot of time with the baby. I liked it better when there were only three of us. |

 Some of my friends have brothers and sisters too. We talked about how many people are in our family. |

 To help us compare what kind of families we have, we made a circle graph. The whole circle represents the whole group. Parts of the whole group are shown as parts of the circle that look like a piece of pie. Sometimes a circle graph is called a pie graph. |

 We have asked 24 kids in our class. I asked each kid how many people are in their family. This is what I found out. Click on each box to see it on the circle graph. people on each family = 3 people on each family = 11 people on each family = 5 people on each family = 0 people on each family = 4 people on each family = 1 |

 Look at the circle graph we made to answer these questions by typing the correct answer in the box. Most of my friends have people in their family. How many people have 6 members in their family? 3 of my friends have people in their family. |

What kind of books do you like to read? Build a circle graph to show what 12 of my friends like to read.
• Mysteries = 2
• Poetry = 3
• Animal = 1
• Jokes = 1
Click on the numbers in sequence.

See how the chatr works?

 By looking at the graph we can compare the amounts of our Earth that are covered with fresh water, salt water and land. A circle graph makes it easy for us to compare parts of a whole group. |
