Excel Pie Chart - My Zoo Animals

Students Create a Pie Chart about Zoo Animals

Students imagine they have a mini-zoo with several types of animals. Students use their worksheet to count how many mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, or amphibians they have.

Students use their data to create a spreadsheet and pie chart illustrating the number of each type of animals in their zoo. Grades 2+

Make the zoo animals handout available to students. Students count how many mammals, fish, reptiles, and birds they have on their handout and write in their answers. Students open a spreadsheet program and add a title with their name in it (Sydney's Zoo Animals).

Students enter their animal name types (Mammals, Fish, Reptiles, Birds) in column A, and the numbers they have of each type in column B.


Students use the information to create a simple pie chart. Students may add related clipart to illustrate. Students save and / or print their finished work.
