Bar Graphs
3rd Grade

Welcome to the Math Salamanders Bar Graphs 3rd Grade.

Here you will find our range of bar graph worksheets for 3rd graders which will help your child to read and answer questions about different bar graphs.

As well as bar graphs, there are also some picture graphs on this page, where one picture represents more than one unit.

Bar Graphs 3rd Grade

Third graders will be familiar with bar graphs already, and should be ready for the next stages of difficulty.

At third grade, the scale becomes more varied and goes up in 5s, 10s, 20s, 50s, etc.

We also become more interested in estimating the height of bars, when they are in between two values.

On this page there are a wide variety of bar and picture graphs on a variety of different topics.

There are also some bar graphs that show real-life data such as the fastest flying insects, or the tallest trees.

Some of the bar graph sheets involve drawing missing bars, or completing missing data using the bars.

There are also several picture graphs on this page, which is another good way to represent data.

At third grade, each picture represents several units, e.g. a picture of an apple may represent 10 apples in the picture graph.

It is important to study the graph carefully to make sure that key information is not missed.

Using these bar graphs 3rd grade will help your child to:

  • read and answer questions about scaled picture graphs and bar graphs;
  • read and interpret picture and bar graphs with a scale going up in different amounts;
  • draw missing bars in a bar graph;
  • answer questions involving data.
