Count the smarties according to their colours and record results on the tally chart that the teacher will give to you. 2. Make a picture graph in your exercise books using the information from your tally charts to help (note: make sure you use the same colour pencil to represent the smartie colours). 3. Create a bar graph using the previous information. Extension. Create your own tally. Go around the class and ask your classmates which colour smartie they would prefer to eat. Eat your smarties once your ork has been checked!!!
