Template for making a block graph about which are the children's favorite piece of fire brigade items. Can be easily edited to accomodate any theme. Aligns well with sorting and counting and organizing and representing data.
The pupils have to tally red, blue, green and yellow cars as they fly past in the presentation.
This has proved a popular resource at both schools I have taught, particularly with lower ability classes
