Ice Cream Graphing – A Basic Graphing Game for Grades 1 and 2

Ice Cream Graphing is a new graphing program on, designed as an introduction to graphing for students in grades 1-3. The object is to construct a pie chart and bar graph based on specific ice cream orders. See the pictures below for more details.

Here, the student is presented with a pie chart that represents the order, but what section of the pie chart matches each order? Students can drag the items to the correct portions of the pie chart. Please note these graphs can be printed by clicking “print.” When the student is done, he or she should click “done.”


Finally, the user must construct a bar graph based on the orders. He or she should simply drag the square cubes to the fields above each item until the bars match the number of each item ordered.
