What do you like? The Grade 1’s want to know! Basketball? Skiing? Singing? Pizza? Wearing hair bows and elastics? The Grade 1’s were on the hunt for answers to these and other survey questions on Wednesday. The office/library was abuzz with information and the recording of names. The Grade 1’s have been working through their data management unit in math and needed specific data so they could create their own personal bar graphs. (We have also been learning about pictographs.) Travelling around the school asking questions and recording answers was a great way to practise our data collecting skills and our manners. After their adventures, we also talked about the real life applications of survey taking like politics and marketing.
