This data activity is a whole-class activity which has your students performing all the essential steps of data collection. The activity is based on students’ favorite pet animals. It begins with students voting for their favorite pet (choosing from fish, dogs, birds and cats) and creating a tally chart using the results. Using their tally chart, they then create a bar graph to represent the results. Next, students answer a set of questions about their bar graph. Finally, they color in the picture that they voted for and then compile the pieces to create the final product. The finished product is super cute to display.
♥ Included are step-by-step instructions.
♥ Includes a US version as well as an Australian/UK version.
♥ Please see the preview for an outline of the activity.
