Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

We all like some foods and there are going to be some we don't like at all. For example who likes sweetcorn? See - some say "yummy" and some say "yuck!".

Mrs. Bates's science class were finding out about foods and who liked what. They were asked about their favourite foods and the data was plotted on this block graph:

 

 

See if you can use the information in the graph to answer questions about the children's favourite foods.

  • Question 1

Here is a block graph of the children's favourite foods:

 

  

What was the most popular food?

CORRECT ANSWER
chocolate
EDDIE SAYS
If you look at the block graph you can see that 4 children liked chocolate best, 3 liked chips and 2 liked pizza (see which number the top of the blue bar lines up with), so more children liked chocolate as their favourite food than any other.
  • Question 2

Here is a block graph of the children's favourite foods:

 

 

How many children liked pizza best?

CORRECT ANSWER
2
EDDIE SAYS
If you look at the block graph you can see that the blue bar for pizza lines up with the number 2 on the left, on the upright line (vertical axis), meaning that pizza was two children's favourite food.
  • Question 3

Here is a block graph of the children's favourite foods:

 

  

 

How many children liked bananas best?

CORRECT ANSWER
1
EDDIE SAYS
If you look at the block graph you can see that the blue bar for bananas lines up with the number 1 on the left, on the upright line (vertical axis), meaning that bananas were the favourite food of just one person in the class.
  • Question 4

Here is a block graph of the children's favourite foods:

 

 

Which TWO of the foods were the least popular for the class?

CORRECT ANSWER
bananas
roast chicken
EDDIE SAYS
If you look at the block graph you can see that there are two foods that only one of the children liked best - bananas and roast chicken.
  • Question 5

Here is a block graph of the children's favourite foods:

 

 

How many children were asked about their favourite foods?

CORRECT ANSWER
11
EDDIE SAYS
Oo, tricky one!! If you can see that 4 children liked chocolate best, you add up how many children liked each food and you can see that there are 11 children.
Chocolate = 4, bananas = 1, chips = 3, pizza = 2, roast chicken = 1. Add those up and what have you got?
  • Question 6

Some of the things on this graph are not actually very good for us:

 

 

If we want to stay healthy how often can we eat food that is not very good for us?

CORRECT ANSWER
sometimes, as a treat
EDDIE SAYS
Take chocolate - it's full of sugar and fat (which we don't want too much of) but it's yummy! If we had chocolate every day, that really would not be good for us, but if we never had it at all we'd be missing out on something delicious. So, every now and then is fine.
  • Question 7

Which of these statements do you agree with most?

 

Statement A: "It is best to eat as much as possible."

Statement B: "It is best to eat lots of different types of foods."

Statement C: "It is best to eat whatever we fancy."

CORRECT ANSWER
Statement B
EDDIE SAYS
It is good for our bodies to eat a variety of foods as that will give us the energy and nutrients that we need. It would be bad to eat as much as possible as we'd get awfully fat and if we only ate what we fancied we'd probably not have a balanced diet so we'd miss out on important vitamins and minerals.
