We've been working on collecting data thanks to Mrs. Nelson's little Tallies and Graphs: Collecting Class Data freebie on Teachers Pay Teachers. My kiddos loved collecting data on each other. We talked about surveys and even how to politely ask someone for their opinion: "Excuse me, Miss Long, but could you complete my survey." My little friends had so much fun. For each page we would talk about the title of the survey and the choices. I would then set our Smart Board timer for 5 minutes to let the kiddos gather their data. I was worried that 5 minutes would be too long or too short but it seemed to work perfectly for us.
Here are a few pictures:
They crack me up with how professional they act with their clipboards in hand. Now that we have all of this data, we'll be able to create some pretty amazing graphs!
