The recording and drawing of bars on bar graphs can wait until 2nd grade when children are ready to do this.

The worksheets on this page focus on simple analysis of bar graphs.

All of the bar graphs first grade contain pictures of the data groups in question, so the pet bar graph contains pictures of the pets to make it easier for young children to understand.
