Bar Graph Worksheets for 2nd Graders

At a 2nd grade level, most children will already have seen bar graphs and know what they look like.

We start increasing the level of complexity of the questions, asking children to compare the sizes of different bars, asking 'how many more...?' type questions.

We also start looking at bar graphs where the scale does not go up in ones, but in twos as well.

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

The worksheets on this page focus on simple analysis of bar graphs, though some of the activities also involve drawing the correct size bars on the graphs.

There are also several picture graphs on this page, which is good place to start when looking at bar graphs.

Children can see what the pictures are and how many of each picture there are. It is less abstract than looking at bars.

With the picture graphs, each picture represents either one or two units.

Using these bar graphs 2nd grade will help your child to:

  • read and answer simple questions about picture graphs;
  • read and interpret bar graphs with a scale going up in ones;
  • draw correctly-sized bars;
  • answer questions involving data.

The worksheets have been split up into 2 different sections below.
