Home activities among young children

Different home activities among young children in four different countries

Model Answer:
The bar chart shows data on the young people’s indoor activities in Malaysia, China, Nigeria and Sudan. As is obvious, playing computer games is a popular home activity among children in these countries and reading books is less common among Nigerian and Sudanese children.

As the diagram suggests, computer games are quite popular among children in these countries as half of the children in Malaysia and Sudan play computer games. The ratio of children involved in this activity in Nigeria is even higher while four in ten offsprings in China play computer games. Watching TV programmes is another preferred home activity among the youngsters as 30% children in these countries follow TV when they are home. Board games are picked up by almost a quarter of the boys and girls in Malaysia and China while it is most popular in Sudan with 30% active participants in this activity. Finally, reading is not as common as other indoor activities are and the highest ratio of child readers reside in Malaysia, 20%. Only 10% Nigerian and Sudanese children read books when home and this ratio is 15% in China.
